“The painter of the future will be a colorist in a way no one has been before.”
Vincent Van Gogh

“Creation is dominated by three absolutely different factors: First, nature, which works upon us by its laws; second, the artist, who creates a spiritual contact with nature and his materials; third, the medium of expression through which the artist translates his inner world. ”
Hans Hofmann

“Color in a picture is like enthusiasm in life.”
Vincent Van Gogh

“Oh! I must somehow manage to do a figure in a few strokes.”
Vincent Van Gogh

“Accurate drawing, accurate colour, is perhaps not the essential thing to aim at, because the reflection of reality in a mirror, if it could be caught, colour and all, would not be a picture at all, no more than a photograph.”
Vincent Van Gogh

The painting to the right was created in 1989 and was filled with metaphors and symbols. She set aside this style for years as she mastered color, form and line.  Today she again allows the muse to work through her as she creates Soul Portraits.
