About the Artist
I am a packrat, a collector, a recycler. Anything catching my eye with an interesting shape, color, pattern, or texture will be quickly swooped up and stashed in my studio for a future project. Fragments, found objects and scraps, be they washers, petals, wire, or the liner from a fancy envelope, fill my work with memories of other lifetimes.
My compositions are alive and passionate. They are not created from the far end of a long paintbrush. My fingers are engaged in dance; as they feel each crevice, place each object and smudge layers of color in, they tap along coaxing the scraps to meld together into a new order, and a revived life. Through this process I allow my hands and my imagination to partner as I seek to convey the freedom of spontaneity, and exhilaration of creation that I feel when stitching together these pods of my travels.
