ARTIST STATEMENT

Jean Catherine Howard

Tending to the stories in my life.

How am I tending to the enduring stories of my life?

What is my Rule of Life?

What in life moves me and why do I create art from those narratives?

My watercolor art on recycled seed paper represents images, moments and enduring stories that are metaphors life.

It has been said there are four things needed for quality living. They are love, hope, zeal and hospitality.
Today we live with multiple "over-whelming" raw fears but with effort we forge on listening to one another, meeting with one another and respecting one another.

We ask in a collective voice, "How can we protect our animals and environment?" With determination we cry out, "Can our planet be brighter, kinder, and gentler?".

We wonder, when one lonely person falls in love does the world change?
