Art is my language and it speaks of how I am innately wired, to search out, be inspired and seek truth. As an inspirational artist, I find my clues from nature, humankind and joy of living and the world beyond. My pledge to my life’s work is an exploration using many different mediums. As a multi-media artist, I work in fiber, oil, acrylic, teaching and engaging on all levels in the art world allows me to fully express any given subject. I hope that you will find in my work art that resonates with you and allows discovery anew and fresh.
It’s the mystery I’m after, not the solution. I have been influenced many times over by a background in architecture, a lifetime of traveling and living abroad, and a love of people.
My process involves putting down multiple layers of design, color and composition, pausing after each layer to strategize over the next color mix and brushstroke. I usually have a recent place in mind or a quote I have read that seeks to be captured in the creative expressive movement in my work. I fall into a purposeful path of discovery: switchbacks, places of rest, milestones and the ultimate visual ending. The fun occurs in unearthing it all, in a way that surprises me. The rest is history and the end result is wherever you end up. Digging for clues and knee-deep in paint… –Debra Goley
