My work is a constant exercise in learning and experimentation, moving from process to process and from one material to another, from straight acrylic on canvas to a process I developed using acrylic and watercolor, natural dyes, pencil, ink, and wax on paper. From there to using printed and dyed paper, fabric, cardboard, string, found and rusted pieces of metal and scrap, and, lately, grasses, plants, and natural clays — always trying to create interesting combinations of color and texture. Story without narrative; story in process and material.
It is a constantly evolving and continual experiment in technique, so my style and choice of subject matter constantly change. But I always begin a painting with an image in my head and one thing that feels true; most often some discarded piece of paper or scrap of rusty metal that strikes me as beautiful in its decay or its pattern. From that starting point, I let a painting take over, watch it evolve and, each time, invariably, learn something new.
