Like my daily practice of walking in nature, I find the process of creating art similarly meditative. By taking each activity one step at a time, with no concern – or plan - for my destination in either experience, I remain grounded in the moment. I love collecting materials and images, thinking and pondering, and then launching into the hands-on aspect of making art when the spirit moves me.
I never rely on a preconceived idea or preliminary sketch in my collage and monoprint work. By utilizing a meditative or intuitive process, I orchestrate the array of chaos around me until all the diverse elements find their ideal fit and fall into place in perfect harmony.
For me art is a journey as well as a feeding the soul.
