Upcoming & Current Exhibitions
The swirling, poetic moments, when I close my eyes and allow real and invented experiences to intersect, inspire my current mixed media paintings on paper, canvas and panel. People, places, thoughts, shapes and colors from everyday life move like quick films or snapshots; mysterious picture dramas shift between the seen and unseen, moving from the transparent to the obscure; and patterns, events or phrases become volatile and unsettling in my art. I document and observe these unfolding events, which engage the imagination and create a sense of place.
My process in creating art is to erase, inscribe, trace, incise, collage and transfer the resultant marks and images onto paper, canvas, wood, plastic or Plexiglas. Colors, shapes, movements, textures are repeated on multi-layered mixed media surfaces, becoming collages of traces. I reach the desired result when the patchwork of translucent plastic, paper or blackboard paint seamlessly incorporates the surrounding elements.
