Take my hand


The most potent muse of all is our own inner child. (Stephen Nachmanovitch) and right now it beckons me to continue my journey!

I guess I would have to classify myself as a “self taught” artist not having an MFA or a BFA degree. I am a happy mix of self learning and a bit more formally from artists in workshops and institutions. And after over 15 years of figuring things out, I wouldn’t want it any other way! The journey of understanding and making art, for me, is a continuous learning process: Improving existing skills, learning new ones and most of all growing with the experience. Drawing and painting are an integral part of my life, something I am passionate about. The blogs, Maya & draw the line, document the road traveled thus far. People, their moods, interactions and emotions are an ongoing source of curiosity and interest. What I’m searching for is their inner personalities, their thoughts and there are stories I build around them as I work. I like portraying feelings of people when they are alone, lost in their thoughts, caught unawares. Those are the special moments that appeal to me most. I love to experiment and use a variety of medium ranging from oil, charcoal, printmaking, clay to the digital medium. Regardless, my focus remains fixed on the human form.

  1. Wow, you did a great job painting me. I have not had any training in painting people and I thought I’d try. I need help obviously but I did have fun with the challenge. You have tallent. Thanks

    1. Hi, I’m Jill Polsby, one of the people who painted in Karin Jurick’s portrait painting challenge.
      I had an idea today and am going to write to the people whose emails I can locate.
      I captured Karin’s likeness from the fourth You Tube video…..and I thought it would be wonderfully fun if each of us who painted in the DSFDF challenge, took the time to paint Karin and to send the pictures to her, en masse, on January 31. She could then enjoy our thanks in an actual way, through paintings of her! I would send each person the photo that I have………..we’d all do our best………..and we could once again say thanks for all her work on this wonderfully fun project!! What do you think? Would you have the time?

      I’m saying to get these done by Jan 31 and then we’ll all send them to her on that date and surprise the heck out of her……….I’m hoping you’ll want to participate.

      It’s supposed to be a total surprise. !!!
