Artist Statement:
I create art in a range of media. In my recent works on paper I layer acrylic paint and then scrap and scratch away paint on the surface while it's wet. Pieces of colored and printed papers are collaged on with matte medium. Areas on the paper are sectioned off with painter's tape and within those areas I add pastel and paint. I then remove the tape. I combine spontaneous, lyrical mark-making with straight-edged shapes. When I succeed the result is a lively abstract composition. Titling my work is an enjoyable challenge. I study the image and see what feelings, memories and references it invokes.
