My artistic goal has been to create images that uplift the spirit and make visual music which sings to the soul. I enjoy every aspect of what ever I am working on. I also enjoy acting as a creative coach for youth and adults and facilitating their process through private classes and group explorations. My art is in private and public collectionsas well as in my Patricia’s Wellness Arts Cafe and By Hand Gallery. “Peace Words”, an open book, hangs in the Indiana University Fine Arts Library as part of their extensive artist books collection. As a Reiki Master Practitioner, Spiritual Healer, Prayer Shaman and Teacher, I see clients by appointment and teach individuals, families and children by arrangement. I use my understandings of Energy Medicine into all that I create through art or spoken word. I am a resource for those seeking to explore more joy, creative mindfulness through play and using tools to support healing intentionally through relaxation, releasing and restoration. I have been working in and exploring this area since the 1970’s.My personal work in this time is to crafting a more peaceful and sustainable world. A long term project whose parts have ebbed and flowed is my work with the non-profit resource Green Dove Network, Inc., the umbrella for Local Food Bloomington and the Indiana Holistic Health Network
I currently work in three different painting styles. Endlessly intrigued with nature, the focus of much of my paintings has been local birds and vegetation. My work is influenced by classes taken with several Chinese artists. The use of the bamboo brush and minimal brush strokes lends itself to the freshness of the subject. I continue to explore the fluidity of watercolor and strive to capture the energy of nature’s ever changing imagery.I also enjoy doing musician gesture drawings. These are done while listening to live performances so that the music influences the lines. I do many sketches in order to accomplish my goal of expressing the most with the least amount of line.Recently I’m returning to abstracts. Using acrylic paint as a medium, I spend a lot of attention mixing the colors while referring to color combinations in nature. Then with careful manipulation, sometimes only using my hands, I allow the paint to pool and flow creating the natural abstractions. Frequently I find some of the most exciting areas to be rather small, so photograph and enlarge the area creating new compositions.Though these three styles appear very different, they are similar in that I am trying to capture the energy of the moment.Commissions are welcomed.
