I think my art changes all the time. It is the voice of my spirit and it evolves and when I trust where it’s taking me I get excited and paint more. I have paintings all over the house that might be done or might not, and I will paint over top of them as I change.
Painting is incredibly therapeutic for me. All of my paintings are about transformation. As I age, they embody the question, “how do I transform into this new person.” It is this existential angst about recognizing and transcending the idea of growing up and out and now in, thinking inward about what life is all about.
I start by giving myself little problems to solve. I put colours down or put paintings together and sideways and then pull apart and work with fractals and shapes. I like to work with patterns and soon a pattern develops and speaks to me; it is always saying something different.
What people are able to see for themselves in my paintings is always different. It usually relates back to what is going on in their life at the time. They are time pieces, with layers and layers of time within them. It’s a process of capturing the essence of time for me. For others, it is the exploration of a personal internal landscape and internal dialogue in a visual form.
