Artist / Personal Statement
How do you express the inexpressible? How do you show the invisible? How do you communicate the deepest joys and sorrows, questions and answers, longings and fears that we all face? It is a calling not undertaken lightly. For it requires gut-wrenching honesty, brutal soul-searching, and the courage to risk critique of your most intimate thoughts and feelings and beliefs, and abilities.

You are invited on this journey. A poetic expression of one artist’s spiritual journey. Through color, movement, line, texture….layers of expression, editing, bringing into creation visual expressions of unseen places, places where the divine meets human, heaven meets earth, spirit meets spirit, and the invisible is made visible. A yearning for the heavenly language….a grasping for the divine, a searching for purpose and meaning, for connectedness, for intimacy. A longing to inspire hope, faith, healing, and transformation in those who come alongside….

These are my visual prayers….offerings of love and suffering, affirmation that we all share a common experience and journey….that we do not travel these paths alone.

Let your spirit and heart go where perhaps you’ve not gone before….listen closely….the unseen is calling, the invisible is made known….

Hi Julie, glad you are interested!
The gallery is located in Metuchen, NJ...a very small town in Central Jersey...a brief 30 min. train ride from NYC.
