After I left college level teaching and had more time to involve myself in the study of art I found there was more to share and so much more to learn. Teaching is a calling for me, which makes me, compelled to share my thoughts, insights, interactions, and readings. I refer to myself as an "Artist Teacher" from the book titled the same, subtitled, A Philosophy for Creating and Teaching by G. James Daichendt. My goal is to share my encounters, achievements, travels as I progress through this artistic journey.
The artist is a prophet, the job at hand is to seek out the unknown and make it concrete. My current work is about capacity and the limitations of space. The glass ceiling, the limited time for a woman's reproduction, the limitations of things that fit in a living space, etcetera. I enjoy the viscosity of paint and want it to be part of the dialogue. I often work on paper with watercolor and ink wash I love the immediacy and fluidity in this medium. I am connecting conceptually and aesthetically to the artists Jean Arp, Terry Winters, Martin Puryear and Anish Kapoor. The curvilinear is to me a feminine form and is more comfortable to me, and in the work, I push against the rectilinear (masculine). The shape exists in its own skin, bulging and growing against unexpected limitations.
