Plant Talk Spirit Room

2023 - 2024

New painting project


(title: My favorite plant Syl and her new friend Sid, from the series Plant Talk)

A few years ago I started writing a book (Adoptica) about my life as an adoptive child. My biological parents were painters. I started to paint, one of the few disciplines I always tiptoed around as an artist. Somehow it feels natural. Looking around in the studio my favorite plant Syl caught my eye. She is the ideal model, always there. I have learned that many contemporary painters, even now, keep training their skills by observing what’s there. The private sanctuary of home, and the studio.
