I consider my paint as a sculptor might her clay: Each brush stroke takes on a form of its own and, in the end, creates textures that explore and express an object or scene. My panels rarely sit static in the easel; I turn them sideways or upside down--sometimes even laying them flat on the floor--throughout the process as I explore ways to layer and move paint. What I’m beginning to tap into through this process is a dynamic experience of weaving an image together, of building it.
Having practiced architecture, I continue to engage structure as an art form--this time with paint--capturing the rhythms and complex beauty in the lines and curves of both our man-made and natural worlds. My work is composed of rural and urban landscapes as well as particular objects that connect with my love of sculpted form.
