Painter at Jerome Street Studios in Medford, MA
Artistic exploration has evolved into a practice of self-study. The act of making art allows a space to be created between the experience and the experiencer; a way to momentarily pause from consistently looking outward towards the external, and catch a glimpse of one’s internal world. This action has led to new understandings, and more importantly, new questions.
“When you walk, when you enjoy the morning sunshine, the trees, the friends, you don’t need thinking to do all that. We have to learn to be in a non-thinking mode in order to get in touch with the wonders of life. I think we all think too much.”
– Thich Nhat Hanh
