Walk down the driveway through the gate to enter the back yard studio.
Using layers of acrylic paint with etchings, paper, beads, glass, bolts and other found objects, I create mixed media pieces using strong colors, textures, and forms. Each piece is an offering of gratitude and intended to speak to the best in each of us. Embracing change as the only constant, I never consider a piece finished until it has moved beyond my studio or home space. It is liberating to collage more, change a paper choice or add new texture to a piece, thereby altering its overall feel.
Currently, I am drawn to vivid color and texture with small etchings in the underpainting. My paintings reflect a strong affinity for the natural world and the healing elements of connection with nature. Regardless of subject matter, my goal is to always speak to the best in everyone. My hope is that ultimately each piece conveys gratitude for life and the world in which we live.
