I create fabulous, layered, textured and colorful acrylic paintings. I use some oils and markers and other media as well. I paint intuitively, not having any idea what is going to come out at the end of the process. First I start with marks – any mark that draws me. Then colors and then I start looking for something that speaks to me – a shape, a color, a layering….something that brings an image to mind.
Oftentimes I turn the canvas over and over until something strikes me. And if nothing does, I continue with mark making until something does. Mostly my images are of natural objects and of birds, although sometimes I gravitate towards other animals. I am intrigued with depth, layering and the little bit if what remains after a new layer has been put on the canvas.
