Artist’s Statement

My abstract work began appearing about five years ago. It is both a counterpoint to, and a continuation of a life lived and layers of the past as evidenced through memory. By eliminating narrative and figurative elements I have been able to narrow my focus to subtleties of color, brush stroke and surface, which are of primary importance to me.

While I still utilize layered surfaces and nontraditional materials, the work seems to be opening up and moving into more spiritual and meditative areas.

Recently I have explored Encaustic, painting with heated bee’s wax and pigment. This ancient medium encourages layering and creates a more sensual surface-enabling me to deepen my artistic exploration.
