The heart is defined as the center of the total personality, with reference to intuition, feeling, emotion, love, sympathy, courage or enthusiasm. The innermost or central part of anything.
My Hearts come from pure emotion I am feeling and experiencing at the time. I have no preconceived sketches, ideas, or desired end results but rather engage in spontaneous exploration of art and self. The result: paintings that are uninhibited, unpredictable, emotional, expressive, and filled with tension and energy. My Hearts illustrate my connection with the art process.
"The place where I had freedom most was when I painted. I was completely and utterly myself." - Alice Neel
