Artist Statement:
"My work strives to be a harmonious visual poetry of color, light, and movement.  More and more, that is the way I see and feel the world around me.  But perhaps it was also the way it began.  And I am finding my return.

The great French Romantic painter Eugene Delacroix said it was cruel, harsh reality from which he fled in Art.

In my work I try to express only the essential, as in written poetry, and I try to feel and intuit and improvise, as in jazz.

An important part of my visual experience is ‘taking in the whole’ which when it is working best, conveys a sense of astonishment at the mystery and harmony of creation.  In seeking to share this sensation, I am hoping to evoke it."
Jan Taylor Weeks, 2007
