I believe nothing in life is wasted; all our experiences become grist for our art. Without them, we would have little that is authentic and personal — and thereby beautiful — to say. Almost 30 years ago, with competing work schedules and overseas assignments, I exhibited in my last one-person show and basically put away my art supplies. After decades of 27+ household moves within the US, Europe and the Middle East, trying to carve out a little creative expression in different countries on different continents, on the corner of the bed or the corner of the table from one year to the next, I’m thrilled with my newly-built light-filled studio in the treetops. Now I’m coming to terms with being a full-time studio artist, combining what I’d learned before (including as a President’s Fellow at RISD), what I’ve seen since, and what is new today as I craft my return to abstract painting, happily investigating paint mediums, still exploring energizing line, expressive color and light, finesse vs grit, shape, depth and layering, always building abstract complexity while trying to keep the passion direct and comprehensible.
