Postcards from the Psyche
I believe the journey to authentic self and God are one in the same, and art can lead to self-discovery. Through art, the many aspects of Self come to light.
I paint interior landscapes: psychological portraits that some call “postcards from the psyche.” I am influenced by the rawness of outsider art and the intimacy of portraiture, which I have collected for nearly 40 years. I often paint over older paintings. It’s not unusual for three or four paintings to be imbedded in the surface of a single piece.
Story builds on story, not unlike the stories of our lives. Recently, I’ve been exploring photography as a meditation on the beauty of creation—as a way of exploring the extraordinary in the ordinary. By adopting what some call “beginner’s mind,” I am experiencing the visual world in new exciting, and more conscious ways.
