Driven by a sense of wonder, growth and endless possibilities, my desire is to express balance in my work that reflects the search for balance in life under ever changing circumstances. Life is a series of happenings, actions and reactions, perspectives, innate pushes and pulls- a true journey. I strive to echo this journey in my work. My pieces are open to interpretation, as each individual reacts and reflects on their personal journey.
The versatility of acrylics allows me to utilize different mixed media on canvas or wood without limitation. The flexibility inspires me to blend with cheesecloth, merge spacco and infuse pumice stone. I push back into my work with rags, accent with knives and continually refine those individual processes. The integration of different materials and the development of the painting itself is experimental.
I do not begin with a defined outcome or goal. Each piece tells me what it needs to grow and speaks to me again when it is complete. By integrating a variety of media, I impose a new circumstance. As an artist, I work through those circumstances as one works through the unpredictability of life. Restoring the balance through texture, lighting, depth, composition and renewed inspiration.
