Before painting, Starr seeks her spiritual connection to the universal Mind.
Then she begins by pouring ink on rice paper. With joy she watches it move to form a shape.

Adding more ink creates amazing color harmonies and shape relationships.

Though the art is abstract, the result has a natural connection to nature.

The concentric lines suggest both the microcosmic to cosmic, like growth lines of a mussel shell, or water ripples, or galaxies.

For over 60 years, Starr has been an active artist living with her family in the Saratoga area.

Her background includes teaching art classes and writing a book, Tongues and Totems for the Alaska International Art Institute in Anchorage.
Her other interests are travels near water, tending and arranging flowers, and studying Nihonga
