36”x48”x1.5” Oil, Plaster

Dream Time. Many of my paintings have the iconic Sugar Loaf Bluff in the background symbolizing Winona, my home for ten years and part of a larger region Known as the Driftless Area. Formations like Sugar Loaf are unique to this region of the Mid West and resulted because the great glaciers bypassed this area leaving the craggy bluffs and deep river valleys. In fact, Sugar Loaf is a man made phenomena formed from a mining operation but its form to me, and others (Including Aditi C., my muse for this piece) has become the dreamlike reference point known as “home”.

The Swimmer

The Swimmer. The determined swimmer breathes as she prepares to dive deep. The earth is 71 % water, adult humans are 60% while newborns are up to 78% water. The metaphor of water is used throughout mythology, religion, and art to symbolize a psychological transformation or to express a dive into elements of the subconscious mind. The swimmer lets go of all the internal and external chatter and allows herself to connect to her watery core and the ebb and flow of universal consciousness.

My work is influenced by the great Masters. “Golden Swim” is inspired by Da Vinci’s “Lady with Ermine”. The enigmatic expression here is timeless. The swim cap brings her to a more modern time yet not our time, while the gold leaf background elevates her to a sacred space and an eternal present. My portraits are about emotion, but not one I want to dictate. I prefer the viewer to spend a moment putting reason and knowledge to the wayside and allow themselves to just feel.

Perfect Form Triptych. It is a myth that you have to have a certain body type in order to be healthy, athletic or for that matter worthy or beautiful. Australian swimmer Leisel Jones, achieved her dream of becoming a nine medal winning Olympic Champion. Her moment of triumph was broken by cruel jabs about her weight. Despite her notable and heroic accomplishments she was reduced to being just a “fat girl”. On the day of her Olympic glory, she was quoted as saying; “I wanted to crawl under a rock and die”. This is how we as a society all too often dismiss women. Happily, there is a sea-change occurring (pun intended). Predatory and insensitive men (and women) are being called out and held responsible for their behavior and it is not a moment too soon.
