G_Goldie_1My paintings evolve out of both past memories and the immediate artistic experience – which I perceive as both mystical and magical.  The patterns of life that are evoked in my paintings come from  techniques developed over a lifetime and that sublime involvement in the moment, what is known as the process of creating.  My interests are so varied that I find it hard to categorize my art.  I do multi-media of all kinds including 3 dimensional work.  My studios is filled with “unimaginable stuff” which sooner or later gets used in my art.

 Born and raised in New York City, I was fortunate to experience the joys of artistic creativity that NYC had to offer – from the Beatnik Cafes and Schools of Greenwich Village (yes, along with Bob Dylan, though not together). Working in theatrical advertising, I took every advantage of the wonders of Broadway and NY museums and galleries. G_Goldie_2

I have BA in Art & Education from Adelphi and began my art career with a NYC theatrical advertising firm.  It was an exciting time to be in NYC -lots of glamour and strange experiences.   After getting married I began teaching on Long Island. But with four children,  I found it easier to get two Master’s degrees – one in Liberal Studies and one in Anthropology & Archaeology – both from SUNY at Stony Brook, the beautiful north shore town where we lived for thirty years.  Focusing on the implications of economic/environmental changes primarily in Caribbean archaeology.

I arrived in Arizona’s beautiful Verde Valley in 1994.  Museums which have exhibited my work:  Schneider Museum of Art in Ashland, OR &  the  Albuquerque Museum.  In addition to creating art, I have also taught various anthropology & liberal studies courses  at Yavapai College – Verde Campus.    I also teach various art & creativity workshops.
