Mission Statement

The name “Coast Solitude” is a metaphor for the space in which the creative process occurs.

The “Solitude” represents “solitude consciousness”—a place of honest encounter with one’s own perceptions and experiences.

The “Coast” represents the space in which creative interpretation (the mutable ocean) attempts to reconcile productively with the raw, formed conditions of the moment (the concrete land).

I try to encounter the creative space in a state of peace and spontaneity. My hope is that in doing so, I can serve the wellbeing of both myself and my audience.
