Prelude to a Prance

One of my latest pieces, "Prelude to a Prance", was a very large 84"x84", oil on canvas. Irwin and Claude Lande of Montreal (Westmount) commissioned it. My clients wanted a painting that captured the horse's power. They wanted to feel the movement, sound and intensity of the horse lifting up the soil under its hoofs. I studied for days,...

My Wanderlust

In May 2011, I held my first solo exhibition entitled "WANDERLUST, our innate desire to wander, travel and explore the world". My WANDERLUST collection of birds and sculptures were meant to take people away. However, the stillness of the birds in the paintings is almost counterintuitive and asks us to take time for stillness. In an often demanding,...

Artists’ studios are as varied as their art but they are always sacred places dedicated to creating. The studio can be a rented space, a back yard, a movable location that changes from time to time, a location under a willow by the pond, a corner room or a corner of the bedroom or – my re-purposed solarium.

I am lucky that my studio is in my home. Once my other life’s work is under control, I retreat to my studio, a re-purposed solarium, to execute my art. It’s my sanctuary where I can lose myself in my work.

It’s a light-filled space that brightens up my soul. All my supplies are close at hand. I have a place to hang up my inspirations and Carmen Rizzo’s electronic music to listen to.

I don’t have the luxury of time – or peace and quiet for that matter, so meditation for inspiration is not how it “comes to me” as it may for most artists!

Visualization is key for me. Before I begin a painting, I have to see it as a completely finished piece in my mind. I have established the subject, the layout, the colors and the size… I even sometimes see it hung in a particular setting or establishment. My visualization happens while I’m busy doing everyday mundane stuff. Then, when I can, I retreat to my studio.

I know it doesn’t sound very rock and roll, spiritual or romantically poetic – but it’s real.
