My current series “Woman” depicts capturing the moment when the figures depicted in the painting are touched by the act they are performing, absorbed in the dance, ritual, prayer, birthing or mothering.  In their faces is the feeling or mood of the action and a light that shines from within.  Contained in these images are qualities inherent in the female from my instinct and experience, shown in the way they dress, move and portray themselves as well as the curvature of the mark making-these are real women, not the type you see in Victoria Secret which seeks to make us all conform to a certain look.

When viewing the images we can connect with the feminine qualities that are inherent in our own nature whether male or female. They are powerful and provocative. They bring to light sensuality, strength, compassion and truth.  I work in mixed media and enjoy the textures that I create with paint and paper. My journey takes me to many places, always going deeper as I weed through the tangled web of thoughts to find my heartbeat.  Where is the passion? In putting paint on the canvas, the thrill of expressing, a world where art and imagination live!

Degala

Degala, 44 x 36 inches, mixed media on wood, unframed, $2,800

"I drove to the monument and paid for the day pass. I drove to the top of a huge cinder cone and walked around the edge. The place felt ancient and I was feeling lost in the sadness that felt ancient within me. What was I doing in this life? How did I come to be in that place at that moment? There was no answer to the query of my overburdened mind. My sorrow increased.

I read a sign that explained the phenomenon of fertile land in the midst of a lava flow. I saw in the distance a cluster of trees grown tall. It was like an abundant island flourishing in a sea of mother earth's core hardened black. For some reason the lava went around that piece of ground, sparing it her destruction, making it sacred by the grace of her mercy. It was called a dagala.

The sound of that word called to me, dagala. It called to me like it was my name. It opened my heart and I began to cry. I saw that I was like the dagala, that I have been surviving emotional devastation in my life, and I'm not happy with surviving anymore, I need to flourish. I felt the essence of an abundant, creative dagala in my soul. As I understood and pondered these things, I decided to call myself by the sound of the word.

I called myself Degala."
