My early paintings were realistic watercolor landscapes and florals. Over time my work evolved into more abstract, non-objective representations. I now work intuitively, without conscious thought on a destination or path. Only after a vision emerges does my process become more directed. While intuitive, my work reflects what I have done and where I have been, and inspiration comes from what I have seen in the natural world.
I create texture and dimension as I layer, sand, lift off materials, and add found items. My media remains water based on canvas and paper, and color is the unifying force. While shapes provide structure, lines and textures move freely throughout. Working in mixed media painting is a continually changing process and a challenge that allows me enormous freedom of expression.
When creating my works, I am taken to a meditative, relaxed, spiritual state. When these creative journeys succeed, my viewer’s spirit will also be taken to a special time, place or event in their own life.
