I am currently working on a Swan Maiden Mythology Series embracing mythological images. Seven maidens don feathered swan cloaks to fly. They alight on the banks of a lake, and taking off their robes plunging into the waters to bathe.

Mythology creates images of the spirit; themes that supported human life, built civilizations, informed religions over the millennium. A story that is still relevant in our own lives.

I am moved, inspired by living yearly in the brilliant light and magic of Venice, Italy. The golden blue of the water merging into the golden blue sky, the gilded buildings and the water become one. The voices of the Masters guide my daily drawings.

I am filled with the drive to create beyond all my current visions. Exquisite images I gather around me daily feed my creativity: the song of a tree, shape of a hand, grace of a face.

As a small child, my mother, a painter, gave me the gift of weekly visits to the Metropolitan Museum of Art and all it’s wonders. I treasure the memory of myself as a small child wide-eyed in a room over flowing with Monet’s waterlilies.
