About Me

My photo
Harrison, New York, United States
I love to create and decorate. We now have a store front that exhibits paintings, assemblages, photography, jewelry, pottery and other unique gift items. I'm a mural artist which also extends to painting on anything else. And the tile idea, I have to give credit to my friend Emelio, who I have painted many tiles for.... I also teach art to kids. Kids are good for your art. They free you up!

On the easel - a collaboration

I had an idea.
I thought it would be fun to do a project together.
John and I have worked on a piece together a few times, 
he would start it and I would finish it.
This would be different.
It's not paper and marker.
We would go back and forth with it and adding what we desired.
We both picked out a canvas, 24 x 30.. inches.
Yesterday I unwrapped it and decided I would start by putting on some background color.
Instead of painting my usual blues, I asked John what he would like as a background and  he suggested the color of the walls.. in the gallery room which is yellow or the studio room which is pink.
I chose both plus white.

We both liked the results and I just sat and stared at it, 
coming up with images, (volcanoes, spirits, fish..) 
and feelings of where it might go from here.
I felt it had an ethereal feel.. 
"Genesis" said John.
More ideas flew through my head.
I thought of attachment, both emotional and physical.
On the ride home we discussed it as if it were a marriage. 
My work, his work coming together as one creation.
I have excitement and anticipation for this new creation 
and what we will give birth to.

Inside Out Opening Reception at Room to Create

Creating art is always an inside experience.
What I propose is to share what is inside each of us and bring it out into the world.
Our message to our self from the process of creating may be something that will be important for someone else as well.
We do not always know how we touch someone else by our "being" in this world.  Sometimes it is just a simple kindness that is a gift for someone else.
We do not always know how our art effects another person, so I see Room to Create as a vehicle for your creative expression.
Room to Create showcases local artists and we would love for you to come and enjoy these beautiful expressions of our inner selves, our joys, our pondering, our truth.
Maybe it will inspire you to create something for yourself.
Room to Create offers studio time for just that.
On this 4th of July, I am grateful for the opportunity and freedom to create.. 
to express ourselves in all our glory!
