"Art enables us to lose ourselves, and find ourselves at the same time." ~THOMAS MERTON
I have loved drawing and painting as long as I can remember. It has always been a way to express myself and find balance in my life. I like to think of myself as a colorist. Color is a means to convey energy and emotion.
When people view my work I hope that they will be able to connect to it in a way that speaks to them personally. I enjoy working in both oil and watercolor. My technique varies from a controlled realistic hand to loose impressionistic strokes depending on my mood and subject.
For me painting represents a lifelong process of challenges, learning, and growth. I love to be lost in time, and totally absorbed while I am painting. "Creating" through art is a spiritual journey that I truly cherish.
I sign my work with my initials, SB, which when connected resemble a butterfly~ my personal sign of emergence and growth.
