Some of the most formative experiences occur during travel with my husband David and friends. Many places we visit are difficult to reach so we often get around on motorcycle. I am the pillion. The people we meet, the encounters with culture, the offerings of each experience, have profoundly changed my life and impacted my artwork. As a tourist I don’t pretend to understand all of this, but I am very grateful to have the gift of interaction with people we meet and to feel a profound interconnection with the world at large.
