At an uncertain period in my painting, when I was returning to work as a full time artist, I invited Wendy Elliot to conduct several sessions for me in the studio wherein I would work to identify and develop the questions and processes that were moving my painting. We would also investigate my history as an artist and the impulses that had previously both advanced and hindered the work. The sessions were deeply helpful and Wendy is unrelenting in her ability to deepen and pursue the questions.
