About My Work My art reflects my faith in imagination and intuition, and my fascination with the natural world. Through painting, my ideas and visions become tangible. I see each piece as an interaction -- a conversation -- between the evolving painting and myself. Everything I have seen and experienced flows into the outcome. This approach to creating art is extremely personal -- each piece is a unique result of who I am and how I relate to the world around me. My paintings begin as a series of loose washes of acrylic color. As shapes and impressions emerge, successive layers of transparent and opaque color are applied to develop and enhance the structure and design of the piece. These layers produce an infinite variety of hues and effects which cannot be achieved by simply mixing color on the palette. Although I work primarily in acrylic, my work often incorporates other materials such as Prismacolor, Caran d'Ache, metallic inks, collage, watercolor or graphite.
