Virtue Maps

In this new series, I shifted from painting virtues on white silk to working on a much more somber black background. Created in response to the January 6th attack on the U.S. Capitol and its divisive aftermath, I had a sense of deep mourning around the deterioration of democracy and a need to seek light out of darkness.

This series is a visual representation of meaningful virtues that can help guide our integrity–as individuals and a global society. The individual pieces are created on solid black Fabriano paper and were inspired by the Black Lives Matter street mural, miles from my studio.

I use a wide range of markers, pencils, pens, and paints, as well as neutral, metallic and varied colors that pop-out to engage the viewer.

Each of my Virtue Maps invites the viewer to explore a maze-like visual journey into an imaginative landscape of positivity and to discover insights for inspiration, healing, and lessons learned.

Inspirations: Cave paintings, Aboriginal art, hieroglyphics, petroglyphs, mandalas, sand paintings, analog drawings, Celtic stone carvings, Van Gogh drawings, children’s art, Ndebele house paintings, Dubuffet, Kandinsky, Hirshfeld, Steinberg, Haring, Klee, Kusama, The Virtues ProjectVirtues Matter.
