Painting offers me the practical and metaphorical reminder that there are always opportunities to move forward and change. Working primarily with acrylics, there is no such thing as a “mistake.” I add another layer, another texture, and the painting gradually emerges.
Using acrylic paint, collaged materials, pencils, oil pastels, and other materials, I will often have ten or more layers of media, with the more subterranean layers peeking through to add depth and texture. I enjoy the interplay of complements and the use of grayed colors against bright.I jump in with both feet, and have been called fearless by my contemporaries because of a tendency to paint fast and with great enthusiasm. Each painting is a journey, a challenge, and a wonder. Painting is my passion!
