“The mind and body cannot be separated during productive action. My practice is informed by experience, that to which I carry and to which I encounter. My mark-making is self-generating which aligns with intention, intuition and impulse. I am both an artist and a teacher and I see these two practices as informative and equally important.” – L.J. Turpin
