My abstract art is not created in the loose way that most abstracts seem to be. I create it in an organized, planned, almost architectural way, derived from my past experience as a graphic designer when preparing a layout for an ad. Precise drawings are always part of my process. Inspiration for my work comes from my love for details and shapes from things around me. I work on wood panel layering and sanding the paint, enjoying the raw look. This leads me to loosen up lines and fall in love with imperfections. I add dimension to many of my paintings by sculpting wood pieces and placing them within windows of my panels. I feel like these carved pieces are a bit of an adventure, both in allowing me to work three dimensionally and also to step away from my paints, easel and studio and work in my husbands art studio full of power tools. I have always been intrigued with the combination of painting and sculpture. Many times I include paper in my work. I like to push my limits on each piece.
