Applying and moving wet paint across a canvas or paper is sensual and probably the reason that attracted me to painting in the first place. It is all about the process.
Without preconceived ideas I fill areas with color, some intense, some muted and do mark making on top of that to begin a composition. Working with lines and shapes I am challenged to discover and idea, no matter how abstract, and then pull an image out of the mess. Wrestling this into something recognizable becomes my challenge. My goal is to leave portions of the work ambiguous which creates additional interest and intrigue.
Printmaking is so experimental and exciting that I often have to
change gears and solely concentrate on working with new ideas. Then a new series begins. Combining techniques within one print is my latest idea.
