Wild Child connects me back to a series of works that I executed mostly from 2007 to 2016 in
which children are the main characters of the paintings.


In Wild Child I have been absorbing myself with the inner child first and foremost. One of the
members of my inner family. What is the inner child telling me? What are they sensing? What
wisdom do they possess? How can I care for and nurture them?

Their favorite environment is nature--the all healing place, the inner sacred garden. A place in
which I, as an adult, find deep healing and comfort in my daily life and that is in such close reach
to my home in Seattle.

Elements of dreams, of fairy tales and of my own childhood play a significant role. For example I
have loved and still do love roller skating--but none of this was planned. I just felt what needed
to be seen in the painting.

As with all my work, it comes from a visceral place. I like to leave lots of space for the viewer's
individual experience.
