My story is extended and different. My existence has been an suave journey.
It has been prepared that “within our world exists a collective consciousness or a next sight in which artists, writers and philosophers investigate the vast areas of their creativeness.”
For me it commenced in the city of my birth—Manhattan, New York Metropolis. I was captivated to the vibrance of the artists and their inventiveness, performing out of makeshift spaces in Greenwich Village and all through the town.
Yes—I needed to be an artist!
I had the luxury of staying surrounded by museums and art galleries all over my early years and I absorbed all I could—sketch pad in hand—walking as a result of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, mesmerized by the functions of the masters.
For me curiosity and spontaneity has been my driving pressure, usually evolving nearer to my dream—a dream interrupted and regained.
The fact of producing a living moved me to the professional globe. Nevertheless, I normally remained related to art which gave me the resourceful inventiveness that propelled me by a multifarious career—artist, artwork director, film production designer/producer and interior designer.
Luckily for us, these property afforded me a lot of prospects, one staying an invitation to New Zealand as a designer which was a satisfying daily life changing encounter.
Just after numerous many years the globe ultimately opened up to me. Our film company was thriving and our inside layout studio made it attainable to acquire land, style our household and breed purebred Angora goats which gave us the flexibility to comprehend and regard the animal planet, character with its night time skies and the natural attractiveness of the land. A desire arrive real.
It was then, in the mid-eighties, that I constructed a goat lose with my art “studio” on the 2nd amount, ultimately regaining the aspiration of currently being a wonderful artist.
Right after 3 a long time living the everyday living of a great artist, we at some point moved again to the United States and settled on the island of Maui, Hawaii, the place we are living to this working day.
My get the job done answers and relates to the mystical forces of nature, specifically, our earth, which I approach subjectively. The components that information my coronary heart, brain and palms are linked and deeply rooted in the natural forces of our earth and the elemental electricity that would make up the spiritual palette.
My relationship and interpretation use symbolism. The Moon represents female power, the Sunlight, male power, the Tree, obtaining and transmitting power and the Winged Hen in flight conveys flexibility. New music has also constantly been an inspiration.
Now in my 87th yr on this earth, my art speaks for me. I’m nonetheless refreshed by the creativity that lives in me and the flexibility to categorical my eyesight.
“If Art is to nourish the roots of tradition,
Modern society will have to set the artist free to observe
his eyesight where ever it takes him…
We ought to by no means ignore that Artwork is not
a sort of propaganda – it is a type of fact.”
John F. Kennedy
