Artist Statement

Light through TreesThere have been twenty-five centuries of Buddhist art. Carvings, sculptures, paintings and buildings dedicated to the life of the Buddha exist worldwide.

Spindler sought to demonstrate that the 21st century can inform and update what has already been depicted. She communicates the Buddhist principles in today’s media and forms hoping to create relevance in today’s terms.
