I am primarily an abstract artist. I believe that art should engage the viewer on an emotional, almost visceral, level. what is important for the artist is to be sure, not that their painting is a literal portrayal of what they see, but that it is an accurate portrayal of what they are feeling about their subject.
My work may be described as expressive and emotional, presented on her own terms. I paint with an involvement with the behavior of paint itself, with spatial relationship, and fluidity. It is the special exploration of color, value, balance, motion, and texture that conveys feeling in her work. I handle paint mostly wet-in-wet, enjoying the fluidity of watermedia, resulting in luminosity and imagination. Her work is spontaneous, playful and reactive.
