Recent Work!

Take Apart 3,
Age 45

I just can't believe how powerful the process of art making is for me. At Pratt, my art education teachers were wise women. They talked about the process not the product. Some people consider Pratt to be one of the best art schools in the world. An incredible faculty built that reputation. I was taught well by them and they passed on the knowledge they gained from a lifetime of mastering their craft. They'd be proud of me for making this piece. Don't get me wrong. They'd tell me how to make it better. They might even rip it to shreds. They'd do it to make me better. With all this influence, all my hard work and some talent mixed in, I've reached a place where I can have the opinion of a wise woman too. Here's the irony: at my last performance review as an art educator, I received an average rating from an administrator. She was not an artist, but she had an opinion about what I should be doing as I taught art to others. Our society is all about the product, the outcome and making people smarter. I was evaluated based on what my students learned. The problem was the expectation that the students should learn more about how to talk about art rather than creating it. I was to have a room full of very intelligent and verbose art appreciators. In my opinion, that puts the cart before the horse. How can you truly appreciate something you have not experienced? The piece of art you see here may not mean much to you. Maybe you'd say my artistic performance here has been average. Well, I like the product, but the process is what has brought me to the place where I know my performance rating is not average. The process is where the power lies. Rate that.

Dancing for Joy,
Age 43

I created my painting, Dancing for Joy, on a day when I was full of joy. It was a day when all the "important things" were taken care of well enough to pause and take a reach for something really satisfying. I got out my canvas, paints and brushes, and then I created. My choice to paint allowed me to experience joy. Some things had to be set aside to create my painting. Some things needed to be let go. My happiness wasn't determined by what happened to me that day. It was determined by my choices. I created a space to have joy and I used it.
