IN THE STUDIO
Works in Progress, Videos & Sketchbook Meanderings
It's about honoring my grandpa, whose own artistic journey has inspired mine and who remains the person I think of most when I paint.
It's about appreciating all I got to experience as a child, and the role my family played in creating those experiences.
It's about my love of the pacific ocean and the power it has to inspire.
It's about all those snippets of childhood memories that are so strong and bring comfort on days I feel low:
grandpa in his studio,
grandma blow-drying my hair,
teatime on sandy beaches,
peeling the bark off arbutus trees,
poker on the sailboat,
staring out at the ocean, hoping for orcas,
rocky hikes & collecting moss,
salty ocean spray in my face,
blackberry picking at the school,
fast boat rides,
green shag carpet between my toes,
the marina at night,
breakfast on the deck,
bocce ball on damp grass,
sitting on the steps watching the tide roll in,
the smell of ocean air...
You will obviously experience these pieces differently than me. And although you won't see the same things I see, it's my hope that you will feel the same things I feel: love, warmth, peace & gratitude.
