  • Artist Statement: “Learning to Fly” I often muse on how a painting wants to unfold.. I was looking for a connection. This painting originally turned upside down was about boats. I became frustrated. Constantly the head of the figure kept on wanting to be noticed (upside down). I dared to turn the canvas 180 degrees. This beautiful, mystical figure presented herself. I was thinking – Wow – this is like learning to fly. I needed to trust and listen to what wanted emerge from the canvas. It’s about the journey, lessons that I needed to take before I could begin to fly. I have such a sense of freedom with this piece. I love it.
