“Art is collaboration between God and the artist, and the less the artist does the bett e r.” – Andre Gide
Painting takes me on a journey in which I get to learn; how to be present, to trust myself, to be spontaneous, how not to muscle through. It usually begins with an impulse or mark, a piece of an old painting or found object, which then begins a dialogue as I respond to that first move. The painting “comes to” on its own. I strive to remain open, to stay with the process, to resist the temptation for immediate resolution. It becomes a cathartic exploration, a softening.
