This year I wanted to paint a show full of light and happiness, to propose a spirit of joy in a time when there seems to be plenty of heavy news. Sometimes we have to reach deep inside to find joy and when we do, for an instant we connect with transcendence. This became a theme, and Dance of Light emerged as my title. The love of music, of flowers, of humans going about their lives, pours into my work. It’s a dance of light, of lightness of being. I believe we can come into contact with a lightness of being at any time. But my paintings are here to give a gentle nudge.
