I don’t have to put any thought into driving what my paintings will mean.

It’s struck me how true this simple statement is and how much it conveys.

Meaning is never something concocted and attached to a work of art. Meaning is what emerges as the work develops. Meaning is woven into the strands of what the work has, to use Cezanne’s term, realized.

To insist otherwise is to debase…, life.

My work is centered on attending to the intersection of perception and creativity. Complexity cannot be reduced to any given certainty. Learning is Central: Sharing our gifts, Working together, Teaching and learning in reciprocity. Entering into shared Inquiry, Maintaining these practices as a way of life. Let’s work together to build practices, strengthen dialogue, and discover and develop community. Let me know how we might work together.
