Artist Statement

Fundamental to my recent work is the experience of layering. Many works derive from a physical overlay of materials both organic and manufactured, of painted or sewn patterns, and others emphasize painterly textures present in most works. I am strongly drawn to quirky, whimsical, mysterious forms and potent contrasts of colors, and take a sensual approach to my work.  Yet my imagery develops out of the practice of poetic abstract painting, and just as important as the visuality is the aspect of allusion.

Metaphorically, the emphasis on layering also suggests unknown depths and images only partially visible or present in part. For me, this connects to a sense that the world is not completely knowable, that any truth is partial, and that the actual includes potential.
