My story is prolonged and diversified. My daily life has been an suave journey.
It has been composed that “within our entire world exists a collective consciousness or a next sight in which artists, writers and philosophers examine the vast areas of their creativeness.”
For me it begun in the town of my birth—Manhattan, New York Metropolis. I was captivated to the vibrance of the artists and their inventiveness, operating out of makeshift areas in Greenwich Village and throughout the city.
Yes—I wished to be an artist!
I experienced the luxurious of being surrounded by museums and artwork galleries during my early years and I absorbed all I could—sketch pad in hand—walking by means of the Metropolitan Museum of Artwork, mesmerized by the will work of the masters.
For me curiosity and spontaneity has been my driving power, generally evolving closer to my dream—a dream interrupted and regained.
The fact of producing a living moved me to the business world. Even so, I generally remained related to art which gave me the imaginative inventiveness that propelled me via a multifarious career—artist, art director, film output designer/producer and inside designer.
The good news is, these assets afforded me many opportunities, one staying an invitation to New Zealand as a designer which was a fulfilling daily life modifying encounter.
After a lot of many years the world at last opened up to me. Our movie organization was prosperous and our interior design studio built it probable to purchase land, style and design our property and breed purebred Angora goats which gave us the flexibility to fully grasp and respect the animal earth, mother nature with its night skies and the normal beauty of the land. A aspiration appear legitimate.
It was then, in the mid-eighties, that I constructed a goat drop with my art “studio” on the 2nd stage, ultimately regaining the dream of staying a wonderful artist.
Just after 3 decades dwelling the everyday living of a fine artist, we sooner or later moved back again to the United States and settled on the island of Maui, Hawaii, wherever we are living to this working day.
My function responses and relates to the mystical forces of nature, specifically, our world, which I strategy subjectively. The factors that information my heart, thoughts and fingers are related and deeply rooted in the normal forces of our earth and the elemental electrical power that would make up the non secular palette.
My link and interpretation use symbolism. The Moon represents woman vitality, the Solar, male electricity, the Tree, acquiring and transmitting energy and the Winged Chook in flight conveys flexibility. Songs has also normally been an inspiration.
Now in my 87th calendar year on this planet, my art speaks for me. I’m nevertheless refreshed by the creativeness that lives in me and the liberty to specific my eyesight.
“If Artwork is to nourish the roots of tradition,
Society should established the artist free to abide by
his eyesight where ever it can take him…
We need to in no way forget about that Artwork is not
a type of propaganda – it is a type of reality.”
John F. Kennedy
