Artist's Statement:

When you are dancing, you give of yourself to the rhythm and the elements of human happiness with high spirit. You feel weightless, you imagine light, the heaviness of your senses is faded.

When I am painting, I feel that same rush and spontaneous energy, that leap of faith of a passionate life, decades of living and learning, delighting in emotion and filled with inspiration. Light streaming in. Dance steps.

My new abstract works reflect this inspirational diversion, precious to the earth, and overflowing with amazement. The light is dancing and so is my high spirit. Never expected, but everything I dreamed.
