The texture and colors in my paintings evoke feelings of balance, tranquility, peace of mind, and harmony. When I start working on a new project, I never know what the results will be. Designs are limited only by the imagination and whatever materials are available in my studio. My work is defined by its rich texture and the use of a simple color scheme. As an abstract non-representational mixed-media artist, I work with ordinary, everyday materials, such as but not limited to paper, cardboard, and spackle. One of my favorite is pouring water mixed with glue and pure pigments over the texture. The spontaneity of the water expresses motion and accentuates the texture on the canvas. The layering process only stops when the painting is pleasing to my eye. After all, the real interpretation of the paintings is not what the artist sees; it is in the eyes of the individual viewer.
