Art and Soul

Art making is my way of bringing soul back into my life. Soul is the place where the messiness of life is tolerated, where feelings animate the narration of life, where story exists. Soul is the place where I am replenished and can experience both gardens and graveyards. Art is my way of knowing who I am. Pat Allen

Featured Quote

Although I couldn’t name it for many years, in painting I encountered the power of the inner critic to control and limit my life. This force that counters the desire to create is within each of us. Generally the critic doesn’t appear in full force until you are in a situation where you have the opportunity to do what you want, something important, and self-chosen, something with risk.
