My story is extended and diversified. My everyday living has been an clever journey.
It has been prepared that “within our planet exists a collective consciousness or a next sight in which artists, writers and philosophers investigate the huge areas of their creativeness.”
For me it commenced in the city of my birth—Manhattan, New York City. I was attracted to the vibrance of the artists and their inventiveness, doing the job out of makeshift areas in Greenwich Village and through the town.
Yes—I desired to be an artist!
I had the luxury of becoming surrounded by museums and artwork galleries through my early yrs and I absorbed all I could—sketch pad in hand—walking through the Metropolitan Museum of Art, mesmerized by the functions of the masters.
For me curiosity and spontaneity has been my driving pressure, often evolving nearer to my dream—a aspiration interrupted and regained.
The reality of earning a dwelling moved me to the commercial planet. Nevertheless, I generally remained related to art which gave me the creative inventiveness that propelled me by means of a multifarious career—artist, artwork director, film manufacturing designer/producer and interior designer.
Luckily for us, these belongings afforded me a lot of alternatives, one particular getting an invitation to New Zealand as a designer which was a gratifying everyday living altering expertise.
Right after several a long time the world at last opened up to me. Our film firm was prosperous and our interior design studio manufactured it possible to obtain land, layout our home and breed purebred Angora goats which gave us the freedom to have an understanding of and regard the animal entire world, character with its evening skies and the purely natural natural beauty of the land. A dream occur correct.
It was then, in the mid-eighties, that I developed a goat lose with my artwork “studio” on the 2nd degree, eventually regaining the desire of getting a high-quality artist.
Immediately after 3 many years dwelling the life of a wonderful artist, we eventually moved back to the United States and settled on the island of Maui, Hawaii, wherever we live to this day.
My do the job solutions and relates to the mystical forces of character, particularly, our planet, which I method subjectively. The factors that guideline my heart, thoughts and palms are related and deeply rooted in the purely natural forces of our earth and the elemental ability that tends to make up the non secular palette.
My connection and interpretation use symbolism. The Moon signifies female electrical power, the Solar, male power, the Tree, acquiring and transmitting power and the Winged Fowl in flight conveys liberty. Songs has also usually been an inspiration.
Now in my 87th calendar year on this planet, my artwork speaks for me. I’m however refreshed by the creative imagination that lives in me and the independence to express my vision.
“If Art is to nourish the roots of culture,
Culture must established the artist cost-free to follow
his vision anywhere it takes him…
We must by no means overlook that Art is not
a kind of propaganda – it is a kind of truth of the matter.”
John F. Kennedy
