As a little girl, visionary artist Joyce Huntington was obsessed with dance, but after facing a near-death bout with polio, her creative spirit found new expression in painting, and cooking.
“One day while meditating in my living room, I opened my eyes and looked out to the street where a friend was standing in the yard. I saw that person connected to the tree with infinitesimal lines of light and those same lines connected to the bird in the sky and the child playing down the block, to the sun and back to me sitting in my living room. Nothing was unconnected. I was able to sense the whole. 

Whenever I’m not painting, I’m cooking. The two processes are one and the same to me... intuition rules my painting, my cooking, and my life. When I am ‘in the zone’, conscious thought stops and I let that other level tell me what it needs. That’s when I am happiest, when I’m connecting these different parts of myself to create something new. 

I cook for the sheer joy of observation, grateful beyond words. My first time watching butter foam was momentous, seeing a pan deglazed with a cup of wine was magic. True, these processes had been taking place before me for years, but I hadn’t been able to see them. All the stoves had been over my head.”
