Artist Statement

I have a passion for bold colors and a multi-layered expression of challenging ideas. My approach to painting is intuitive, spontaneous and serendipitous. With no plan or intention, I begin each work by choosing an acrylic color and paint on either paper or canvas in an abstract from or gesture. Then I select another color and create another form. Slowly, as layer upon layer of color is added, the intention of the painting presents itself and I see meaning out of the randomness. Often brightly colored figures arise, bubbling with fantasy and magic and defying gravity or proper proportion. These forms appear to be an innocent joyful exploration but are actually imbued with powerful social or political undercurrents. Recently, the focus of my creativity has been a less fanciful and more provocative series of portraits of women. The style, attitude and personalities of these women evolve right on the canvas until ultimately the lines, shapes and colors meld together as one cohesive expression. My work is inspired by everyday life-its delights, foibles and dramas. The figures in my paintings display their emotions and give the viewer a sense of mood and feeling. I use painting to express feelings about people and their interconnection with each other and their environments.
