I perceive the world through my own personal lenses. The wonders that I see are organized and then painted into powerful and captivating illusions. These canvases elicit visions that give the essence of light by the use of form and colour exclusively. Bold colours and energetic brushstrokes are combined to compose strong designs. The paintings have a distant “echo” of the tactile quality of my past textile background.
The application of paint, in many layers, creates the appearance of a textured surface begging the viewer to touch the paintings. My own hands are included in the many paint application tools. I am at my most happy state of being when I am painting.
