Artist's Statement ::
I like to evoke a sense of time, space or place with abstract images, with the interplay of color and shape, line and layering. At times, I paint from multi-media collages I have created with paper, paint, and fabric, to attain that sense of layers. I like the image of painting as an object that occupies a space, therefore I prefer, in most instances, to paint the edges of the canvas rather than have an “enclosed” or framed image.
