"To dive deep and chase the sublime; that brave yet humble moment when we embark on a career of being an artist. We risk being seen as we strive to see ourselves.

Chasing the Sublime is why I paint. That plunge into the sheer beauty of nature for me instills a continual feeling of coming home. When I paint everything slips away and it is like diving into the river. That place on the shoreline of beginning that marks the first steps when you are dreaming of what might have been and is influenced by the memory of what was...where you are looking out into your hearts eye for inspiration and departure. It is the getting in we find hard..not being in. The water’s unique, sometimes erratic character is what keeps us coming back. You will never have the same swim twice. You might as well enjoy everyone. I am an artist. I am a painter" - Cheryl Johnson.
