My yoga practice and teaching is almost as old as my daughter, 17 years. What I teach in yoga is how to observe, as a painter how to see inside and outside. Here I taught my students to breath to help observe the color of the breathe and the expansion of space.

This art,I acknowledge space between two people, just like observing my yoga students. The viewer is also the witness of this magical space between the hands and faces- They almost touch. The work is all about the connection and intimacy. Teaching yoga is also all about the intimacy and connection.
Part of the series of paintings from the Mural painted at the Mall Settler’s Green located near Felicia’s Store
The shape and line quality of the hands has a fantasy realm to them. With the hands in these pieces, I am trying to show expression by how close the hands are to each other. Where the two faces almost touch, I am using the space to bring some sort of tension, or apprehension.
It was a huge weekend snowstorm that had me trapped at home with eight canvases. That was the environment these paintings were born under. As for the process I kept painting over and the line, or choosing to let the line show, which helped express time and space in a more subtle way. It is kind of like painting in and out of the subject matter. This way of painting in a semi abstract way with the figure has taken me sixteen years and 850 paintings to get to. Before I paint, I spend two hours practicing drawing the faces and hands, so that when I use the brush to draw the lines of the faces and hands it is a singular stroke. As simple as these lines look, they take a lot of prep work. Simplicity is sometimes the hardest to achieve.
