Introduction I believe creating art connects us to the on going evolution of the Universe and that, we are all creative, we just choose to show it in different ways. When I am making art, the barriers of time and space dissolve and I enter a quiet sanctuary. As part of my creative process, I make marks, buried deep into the archeology of the painting, sometimes these are uncovered towards the end, most times they remain hidden under a multitude of layers, yet their energy silently speaks. I leave the painting to tell the story and the viewer to be the interpreter.
Interests Learning, creating art, writing, cooking, gardening, yoga, walking with our dogs, Max & Mollie, dancing, reading and spending time with my husband, Fred, my son and new grandson, Emerson.
Favorite Movies American Beauty, Slumdog Millionaire, The Reader, Talk To Her, Juno, Amalie, Out of Africa, The Incredible Lightness of Being, Room with a View, Crash, Charlie Wilson's War.
Favorite Music All music with the exception of most opera. Never could get into it, however I do like the arias. Cusco, Gershwin, Copeland, The Funk Brothers, Gospel, Sanskrit Chanting, Classical, Mannheim Steamroller, Eliza Gilkyson, Eric Clapton and my all time favorite, Leonard Cohen. See, all over the place.
Favorite Books I am an avid reader. There is no way I could possibly list all the books that are my favorites. I am currently reading a wonderful book, Half of a Yellow Sun, by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, about the birth and death of Biafra. And my hands down favorite magazine is The Sun. I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to enjoy a magazine that is filled with thought provoking interviews, short stories, poetry and reader contributions. They take no advertising. It's a gem.
