Artist Statement

These mixed-media paintings on paper were inspired by my interest in landscape and natural forms. By combining printmaking and painting an exciting journey of discovery can be reached. How the two disciplines are layered is key to the composition. Pattern, texture, shape, line and color are woven together to create a 

visual texture. I invite the viewer to respond.

Abstracted cities offer a place of escape, a space for introspection. 

I want the viewer to be pulled in different directions, drawn 

into the real and imagined images of nature. The place where living naturally occurs can be interpreted in different ways. It is my 

focus to transpose the mood and spirit of each painting 

into a tactile fabric of paint. The viewer is welcome to 

determine his or her own narrative.
