Biographical Information Artist Statement

A lifetime of learning, living, and listening
with reliance on a forgiving, loving God
brings energy and emotion to both
writing and painting.

Excitement and expectation
surround me
as painting or poetry begin.
The whispering wind of the Spirit
pushes me forward.
I flow with its unfolding.

Development of each artistic form
draws me into its own realm of mystery,
becomes a puzzle for me to discover and develop.

Phrase or idea comes to mind
excites senses
carries visual impact.
produces variation of words with similar meaning
teases continued thought and flow of written expression.

Random lines on watercolor paper
a wash of four or five colors
glazes between lines
surge of hue for intensity
begins the search for and
development of idea, pattern, or design.
A new painting begins.

Freedom and creativity reign.
Emotion and thought take form.
