I trained in Europe as a textile designer, and designed works for industry and for one-of-a-kind woven and painted pieces that hang in public and private buildings in Europe and the US. Years ago, I turned to painting as a primary medium and studied with renown painters. Recently, I began focusing on non-objective work on canvas, paper and silk.
I enjoy painting as a reflection of an unfolding process of discovery, a metaphor of spiritual perception and awareness, of spirit witnessing, participating and unfolding in the medium of life. Beginning by letting go of preconceived ideas of what should happen, I “dive deep” into the center of the visual field the canvas holds, and feel the way step by step of the journey through the seeming chaos and change and beyond … as formlessness gives way to coherence, to interconnectness and to a complex play of color, plane and line, recorded upon the visually unified field. I have become interested in the total presence of the painting rather than specific images, and the qualities of light and space which are result of deconstructed images.
