“Although my paintings are representational, they are often not literal translations of their subject matter. The subject can also be a metaphor for an emotion or memory from my own particular and distinctive experience as a woman – wife, mother as well as painter.
I try to create a language of visual elements that communicates through the use of form, color, paint, quality and edges. Each painting is a dialogue of light and shadow, cool and warm, and near and far away. As an artist, I use all of these tools to interpret an idea. I enjoy exploring techniques that allow the paint or medium to have an uncontrolled life of its own. Sometimes the paint is left dripping and sometimes it is applied in a rich impasto. I paint primarily in oil because of its great flexibility but am working in all mediums, mostly on paper.”
