The act of walking has been described as a controlled fall in which we lean forward and out-of-balance in order to initiate motion. Making art is like walking. It involves leaning into the unknown, alive with anticipation, but with a sense of destination. From the first step onward, it is like finding my way home in the darkness of night.
I began to make artworks at the same time as I began to practice meditation. These two practices, the receptive and the active have informed my entire creative life. My path has lead me to work in both two and three dimensions, and to employ a wide range of materials and processes. Paintings draw us into their worlds. We move through them as in a dream, drawn and released by the pulse of color and the energy of line. Mine grow like crystals. I often think of them as musical. Sculptures take their place among us in the world. We relate to them with our bodies. Mine are magnetized by silence. Their presence witnesses. Their stillness invites us to listen.
