This piece addresses how much I love and trust my intuition. It was done totally spontaneously and intuitively with 'exuberant' energy. I used graphite and charcoal for the lines, then rubbed charcoal dust into the surface, later added some acrylic paint, and finished it by sealing with matte medium; (I had primed the paper with heavy gel gloss for texture the night before).
ABOUT THE ARTIST
She always wanted to become a painter, but since art school was not an option for her as a teenager, she opted for a 3-year cabinetmaker apprenticeship in Germany and later worked for a short time as an antique restorer before immigrating to Canada in 1965.
She loves colour and texture, experimenting, and trying out new materials.
Nothing makes her feel more alive than creating something.
