Biography

My studio


Artist Statement

My paintings begin with texture – collaged paper, cloth, canvas and more.  I then block out geometric shapes of circles, lines, squares.  I randomly choose my paint colors and as I drip, splatter, rub and scratch the layers become more organic.   Each painting becomes a journey using texture, color and composition. At the end of that journey, the painting comes to its own conclusion.
