Texture plays a unique and
integral part in my work, often influencing the final composition. The
underlying layers are very organic, giving way to geometry and drawn
images that provide the structure of each piece. Images from my past
and present intermingle, some are painted over, some allowed to remain.
Utilizing multiple layers of acrylic paints and glazes, sewing
patterns, scraps of paper, fabric, and a variety of other materials, I
explore memories, places, and the feelings they evoke. Many pieces
begin with a personal confession- a secret wish...hope...desire on the
initial layer, often completely covered when the work is finished, but
nevertheless, they are there, released.
