My paintings are explorations of spontaneous, intuitive energy as it arises in my body. I attune to a clear and strong urge to create and follows the impulses, my own natural rhythms which ebb and flow. My paintings ultimately express my own true nature; a nature which is inherent in all of Life. My images are non-objective, emotional personal expressions and yet they also transcend the personal. My marks are an inner language I continue to discover on my unique journey in being alive. I feel directly connected to early people who first made marks to communicate and to express the natural markings of nature.
In my mixed media work, I layer found and created papers, and often adds marks, paint, oil pastels and other materials in a single image.
