Over the last few years, a desire to liberate my paintings from flat surfaces and right angles, led to my exploration of more fluid and multidimensional creative approaches, expanding my techniques, and embracing new materials. The internal schism between my painterly self, who builds painting surfaces with layers of pigment and collage, and my stone-carving self, who destroys and removes material to reveal what is underneath, has merged. Now I cut up my paintings with power tools in order to reconfigure them in larger collage-based works. I make large flexible sculptural installations that function as large paintings. My creative path has also led me to work as a ceramicist, textile designer and illustrator.
