ARTIST STATEMENT

Color, shape and texture are compelling to me. Combining different mediums has been a natural progression of my work.  I incorporate printmaking, painting, drawing, and collage. Although I am inspired by my environment, my images are rendered mostly abstract. I view the start of each piece as an experiment, staying open to uncertainty and letting my intuition guide me.  Creating many layers of texture, I then scrape away elements revealing unexpected treasures beneath the surface. Process is more important to me than a preconceived outcome, so taking risks is key to my approach.
