Statement from the artist:  Moving toward Abstraction

Art, work, life and family….all intertwined. There is no separation.

The past year has been a time of service and exploration. If you saw my show last year, you know I was devoted to creating exuberant flower paintings.

Then life took over, and I spent most of the last 4 months of 2016 out of state, taking care of my ailing mom and working on small art projects to stay grounded.

In January 2017, Mom’s health improved and I attended at workshop in Molokai with Nicholas Wilton, an abstract painter from San Francisco, and have continued studying with him. Creating small abstracts has been a way to explore new colors, textures and approaches to art. I’m getting ready to travel again both physically and through bigger paintings, which express my spontaneous, quirky and passionate nature .

I’ve adopted a practice from Julia Cameron’s book The Artist’s Way:

I do the quantity.
God does the quality.

I sincerely hope that my experiments will inspire you to take more changes in your own creative life.

Bio

I’ve been interested in art my entire life but didn’t really make time for it until my children grew up and I retired from my career in web analytics and business intelligence. Since 2014 I’ve enjoyed taking art classes, painting at my home studio and shared studio in Georgetown, and traveling with my husband and CSL.
