Barbara Griek and I offer the opportunity to work both with subjective imagery through art and with the universal images as found in the Tarot.

Whatever you do, or wish to do, as a maker– it is facilitated and deepened through the commitment of a daily practice. All the tools and techniques in the world are no help for a restless mind! The voice of the muse can only be heard when there is space inside.

  • Living Arts Studio

All the fancy tools and techniques in the world won't help us become the artists we wish to be, live the life we want to live, if we don't have something that transcends chaos, change and loss. A daily practice can be many things. One common thread is time away from duty, and a designated place where we are not interrupted, that is sacred.

All the fancy tools and techniques in the world won't help us become the artists we wish to be, live the life we want to live, if we don't have something that transcends chaos, change and loss. A daily practice is a vehicle for both expanding and deepening the work you are here to do. A practice can be many things– one common thread is time away from duty, and a designated place where we are not interrupted, that is sacred. The imagination, our intuition needs to be cultivated– in the same way you make a muscle stronger.

There is a beauty in learning form so well that is becomes internalized. Spontaneity, expression, and working with abstract forms does not come out of nowhere– it arises from structure. I am interested in what happens when we work with form long enough that it becomes something else.

There is a beauty in learning form so well that is becomes internalized. Spontaneity, expression, and working with abstract forms does not come out of nowhere– it arises from structure. I am interested in what happens when we work with form long enough that it becomes something else. In a class in abstract painting we will explore this idea through image and text. We will begin with the horizon.
