My paintings are constructed of the basic elements of art: line, color, texture, and movement play important roles. Multi mediums are used show different phases of the work. Smudges and drips remain to show the history and process. The subject matter, inspired by ordinary objects, is easy to accept and encourages a response based on individual experiences. As a result, the viewer’s reaction to the subject and with the process completes the painting.
My current body of work is inspired my children and their love of reading. My daughter crawling across the floor bringing me books to read, the deconstruction and reconstruction of the bookshelf multiple times a day, and bedtime reading were the inspiration for the subject of books.
