I like to use the expression. "I'm painting to find out." because each new work is an exploration to better understand color, composition, paint application and expression. Sometimes a struggle but always an adventure, I love the artistic process and how I've come to understand that all the elements in my life are tied together in the pursuit of "Living in Balance".
Everything I do correlates to my search for understanding strength and balance. Centerings piece of clay on the potter's wheel relates to drawing from the model and finding the weight and dynamics of a pose. In my Pilate's class. I feel in my own body the same dynamics that I observe in the model. The clay, the drawing, and my body all become one. When I paint in my studio or work behind the camera lens. I search for these same elements in my compositions. My aim is to integrate all parts of my life together. In this place of balance. I am a better mother, artist, wife, friend and human being.
