Neltje's paintings are intense, complex, and larger than life. In her late 30s, Neltje began her excursion into the discipline of Sumi-e painting. That practice became the core of her later work. Dialogue of My Mind is Neltje's first figurative series, which she painted following the 2016 elections. Inspired by the end-of-season explosion of color in her late-summer gardens, Tell Me, Why Flowers? evokes the spectacular, but fleeting, joys of life.
