Artist’s Statement


Sensory Art is a process that evolves from within and drives the creation of a work of art. It requires “listening” to ones’ self and ones’ senses, as in poetry (or other media) where words bubble up from within creating a poem. Sensory images within trigger the artist to paint from their inner sensory being.

The Sensory Process applies to all art forms, music, dance, drama, writing, and more. It is an internal experience, an intuitive path with often an external reference.

A painting can start one way and end very differently. I say that “paintings have a mind of their own!”.  The sensory process is letting it happen, allowing your senses to lead you on a trip, taking a risk. The artist must let go of trying to control and get out of the way.

I say that “my paintings lead and I follow”, meaning that I allow my heart, gut, my senses to lead.  It’s an improvisation, exciting, stimulating and energizing. It’s like choreographing a dance or playing Jazz.

Nature is a rich inspiration for me. The rough and tough, serene and sublime of nature is moving, calming, spectacular, and triggers the sensory experience.


Sensory Art, named by Kathleen Earthrowl, invites artists to join in their sensory process. Her approach is to help painters “loosen up”, trust their inner sense and allow their individual style to emerge.
