My current work is abstract and an exploration of the balance between quiet peace and exciting energy. Too much of either can be destructive —so what is a desirable combination for a work of art —or for my life?
Because I am exploring when I paint, I tend to work with materials that have an immediacy —graphite, soft pastel, watercolor, and acrylic. My approach to each new work is that I’m starting a conversation with a stranger. I’m never sure where it will go but am always excited to start the process. The process may go on for days or years for one painting, but there is always something unknown to explore and experience.
