“When I paint it is not just creating a painting, it is the act of painting. It is transmitting a feeling into a canvas, the act of applying the paint, the movement, almost a ritual”.

Walters is an American painter whose work explores the meaning of being alive. She is deeply interested in psychology and human experience, and explores these topics through varied media, including oil on canvas, enamel, analogue photography, sculpture and pencil. Her inspiration comes from philosophers and psychologists such as Carl Jung, Joseph Campbell, and Marie Louise von Franz among other intellectuals. Walters addresses emotional themes with pared-down directness and intensity, often portraying ferocious animal archetypes and exploring mythological narratives. Her work has been exhibited in New York, Los Angeles, and Berlin.
