The subject of color inspires me.

I am a collage artist.

I work to employ both deliberate and spontaneous appliqués.

I begin the composition with a simple color pencil plan on paper.

On the canvas or board the color of light and atmosphere is applied with intuitive gestures with paint.

I then sift through a collection of painted papers and cloth.

The pieces are cut and torn and applied with acrylic medium and enhanced with acrylic paint.

My compositions are enlivened by the unexpected combination of materials.

The patterns create blossoms of textures on the surface of the painting.

My goal is to evoke joy.

 

Studio visits are always welcome by appointment.
