The artist inside of me has been calling my heart and pulling at my guts. As a full time art therapist and a mom of three fantastic children, I have found every excuse not to answer. Then, my artist started hollering!
I listened. I answered.
In between moments, I painted. On the subway, I painted. While I dreamt, I painted. These paintings are a response to her call.
I have always been in awe of how nature responds to whatever the elements bring.
I am humbled by the strength of a vine, amazed by the complexity of roots and hopeful at the potential of a tiny seed.
Here is where I found my inspiration for this body of work. These lines, patterns, strokes, and layers are my own personal reactions to life's "elements".
This series of paintings reflect my life's challenges, strengths, adaptations and celebrations....in the hopes of becoming more like a fern.
