Making art is most precious to me. While making art there is no other reality except the wonderful experience of creation and the act of being in a sacred space, both in the studio and on the canvas. In my work I attempt to take the viewer into a quiet meditative place, to reflect and to rest from the hectic outside world, hoping to create a contemplative space to calm the spirit and nourish the soul.
I am an artist using a variety of mixed media materials as inspiration. I am influenced by nature, it's textures, earthen hues, and the sense of place. Through transparent layers of paint, ancient script, metal leaf, and collaged materials I try to create a sense of history and deeper meaning to my work.
I often collaborate with my son Aaron Sedway who is a photographer. I find his images to be an inspiration for my mixed media pieces reflecting the beauty found in the natural world. His photographs are often the focal point of my work.
I have also begun to explore the world of Jewish Mysticism and Jewish tradition while seeking to find a path to a more meaningful connection to my Jewish cultural heritage.
