Paintings up at Port Moody Library

Sassamat Lake BC. 2009

In my last blog I called myself a doll artist and I am. That is one facet of a multifaceted artist. I am also a painter.  There will be a showing of my  acrylic paintings at the Port Moody library for February 2010.  I have recently moved to British Columbia and have taken time to explore my new surroundings through painting (en plein air).  I also found myself reminiscing about  when I lived in Alberta and many paintings are from photographs from the Crowsnest area. Now a few new pieces have appeared in the last two weeks, images from a trip to Hawaii. Three very different places, each with its own charm.

Clarity

I am a doll artist. My dolls are my artifacts of an active imagination.

Each art doll I create is a personification of a feeling, dream or idea rather than a realistic facsimile of a human. Their enigmatic forms are often closely tied to a personal encounter with nature. They are artifacts from the world within, the elusive made real.

In the intuitive process it is important not to over think what my hands want to make. My intent is to fuse the dreamlike quality of my creative experiences with my skills as an artist to enchant both the child and adult facets of my self and others.

“Clarity”: Fits in the palm of my hand.
