Artist’s Statement – I have always been an artist, even when I made no art at all. I have traveled many roads in pursuit of personal authenticity, and that is how I have always seen the world, processed and (imperfectly) attempted to live in it. In my 8th decade, even while the aging body and brain lowers some processes, it raises others. I think internal, perceptive listening might be one of those processes, freed from former constraints. In any case, I thought I was retired from making art…apparently, I am not quite yet.
My process is personal and intuitive; I start with an essence—something of concern or interest—follow along where it leads, and end with something of a revelation. If it doesn’t end with revelation, it goes in the “Trials” folder for future reference. These three images are some of the visualizations of the mysteries experienced in my personal faith journey, 2012 to 2022.
