What I see becomes a sort of visual illumination, like a match struck unexpectedly in the dark, a gift, lighting my path into wonder -Virginia Woolf

Thank you WRAF

I appreciate the grant from Region of Waterloo Arts Fund for their support for my project: “So Nature deals with us, and takes away”. This research is based in a practice, which supports consciousness as creative. The practice will delve into the sense faculties to communicate in visual terms truthful pragmatic observations, hopefully also involving moments of laughter. It will allow me to draw/paint/research qualities of “inwardness”.

It is about aging and loss, expressing my inner self through non-objective imagery. Beginning a glimpse of vocabulary.
