My strong desire is to create interconnected, dynamic and lyrical compositions. I start this process with inspirations that relate to nature and music. Intent on creating movement in my compositions, I embrace the currents, flow and motion integral to these subjects. Being in the moment, totally engrossed, while hours pass by like seconds, is essential to my creative process.
I use found and hand-made papers, a composite of personal photographs, and objects such as stones, shells, driftwood, and sheet music. This mix of media enables me to embrace and re-interpret music and the natural world in abstraction. Gels, acrylics, pastels, and grout are applied to enhance texture, depth and to create a 3-dimensional effect.
