Artist's Statement

Creating a painting is a dance, a constant expression of feeling and response to the tactile qualities of materials. As the painting evolves, it takes on a life of its own even though influenced by personal thoughts and experiences. By using a combination of pigment and collage, design elements become formative in the development of the work. Mood, message, and symbols guide my art toward completion. Ultimately, the viewer may be drawn into the painting as a result of recalled experience or mutual understanding.
