With each blank canvas or paper, a window of opportunity opens into my imagination. Allowing my subsconscious to guide me, I paint intuitively, generally without a plan. Many layers of paint are applied in bright, clear glazes, intermixed with a collage of textures, papers, ink, gesso and gels. These layers create depth and dimension, inviting the viewers in and enticing them to take a closer look. I strive to evoke a feeling or emotion in my art. Viewers who closely examine my paintings hopefully become more introspective and reflective. They begin to pull memories from their own life experiences, thereby enabling them to draw their own interpretation.
