Conversation with Silence

"Women who appear with no eye refer to wisdom within. I remember from my childhood observing nomads in the countryside."
When we open doors of the heart to awareness and silence our judgemental mind... we become present, experiencing the silence and joy within.
"I experience spontaneity and state of presence within and transfrom it on the canvas, inspired by music that has been inspired by the poetry of Rumi and Hafez. The flow quality of form and color are indicatative of the dance of freedom, spontaneity, joy and the celebration of life."
"I communicate peace and tranquility through simple forms and variations of white pigments, within the creative space associated with possibility in silence."
In contrast with visual stories told in my first book: A Woman's Eye - Women East Women West for Global Peace, Conversations with Silence stems from a field of non-conceptual state of mind. A presence filled with vibrating silence.
