-ARTIST'S STATEMENT 2014
~ "My work evolves in series, reflecting my personal transformations and soul memories as I journey through the mysterious, archetypal world, awakening and expressing the feelings of new perspectives of awareness through what I jokingly call my "pinhole of light".~
~ DRAWING ~ My ink and pencil drawings erupt straight out of my unconscious with a raw honesty and energy with dreamlike imagery. I explore my inner world though drawings first and then I put my observations into sculpture and painting.
~ SCULPTURE ~ My current wood carvings are human and archetypal figures, alone or with animals and plants, in pairs,circles, or in vertical totems to express
the interdependence of all life. Some are allegorical symbols as if from a dream and.
I will place a mirror in the sculpture to express the Absolute.
~ PAINTING We The People and Between Worlds
I am doing Story Portraits of local people I know who are the soul of Hawaii as well as what I am discovering are mystical explorations of my ancestral soul memories of my family origins, I am finding live documenting this insight with evidence from research online..
~ PAINTING ~`"We The People" ~I observe how people are acting in current daily life..I am expressing the connectedness and disconnectedness of people in small groups such as parks ,farmer's markets or the bus stop. I often paint on a large canvass to give the viewer the feeling of participating in the scene.
I love people! Ask about PORTRAITS for Individuals, Couples and Families
in charcoal, pencil, soft pastel or acrylic paintings. All sizes!
"My goal is to express your Soul!"
My art is allegorical, mystical and expressionistic,expressing my perceptions of different realities.My sculptures emphasize energy with archetypal figures and sacred symbols or in totems that give "qi" or Life Force to the energetic balance of life around them. My pastels focus on familiar but atypical Hawaii landscapes,seascapes and skyscapes that mysteriously blend different places such as placing the ocean in the sky. My drawings and acrylic paintings express either the story of real people or an allegorical world with figures either alone or with familiar life forms such as dogs, birds, and fish in familiar scenes but in another dimension.
EDUCATION and EXHIBITIONS
When I was 15 years old at the George School, I won a scholarship to the Moore College of Art in Philadelphia,PA and later earned my BA degree at Hiram College. At 21, I moved to Santa Fe, NM and pursued my career there as an artist for 30 years. Regionally known in Santa Fe, New Mexico and the Southwest my work has been shown in numerous galleries, universities and museums as well as in my past gallery in Santa Fe and now in Hawaii. My work also toured on the ship "Point Counterpoint 2" down the Mississippi River and in Europe and Russia. A life size commission in Portuguese marble called "Do You Believe in Angels" now resides at The Museum of the Southwest in Midland, Texas.
My artworks are in museums, universities and numerous private collections throughout the USA and worldwide.
A professional artist over 40 years,, I ran my own gallery at 25 yrs old on Canyon Road in Santa Fe, NM.. In 1999 ,after healing breast cancer, I moved to Hawaii where I continue enter shows as well as run my Gallery here in Waimanalo. Sales of my artwork are funding setting up home art centers by street or block in Waimanalo and around the island where needed,to bring the Fine Arts to youth and families through my outreach program Ohana ArtZ.
