STATEMENT

As an interpreter through a personal lens, my work explores time, place, and relationships recording evidence of encounters. To constantly uncover more about myself I explore self-perception through additive and subtractive painting processes. Working from an intuitive female perspective, an attempt is made to translate underlying thoughts of the artist as witness.  With an emphasis on materials and diverse methods, traceable evidence of surface becomes recognizable. Tactile surfaces suggest similarities and comparisons to flesh where paint can act as thin skinned, heavy handed, bruised, like human emotions, giving meaning to life challenges. Once resolved, paintings have a life pulse distinctly their own.

"The art would stand alone.

Its message

would be judged on its expression of

beauty & truth."
