Much of my work deals with change, memory, place, and questions – rarely to answer them, but rather to clarify more directions or paths in my search.
I believe in: cross-pollination, an eclectic mélange of ideas, influences and experiences that enrich my life. Paying attention. Showing up.
Louis Pasteur said (or it may have been Marie, but he gets credit in all the quotation books) “Chance favors the prepared mind.”
Plinius said “No day without a line.” An ancient Chinese proverb says “Live correctly – take risks.” These three concepts form the roots of what I do, in and out of the studio. If I were an animal, I’d be a magpie.
The hanging postcards is the Going Postal project – I draw/paint and send postcards through the mail. Recipients respond by writing/drawing on the card, and returning it to me. Cards swing freely, so are readable by the viewers. This is an ongoing project, and now has international participants.
The last pic is of my travel studio, in use on one of our favorite hikes.
