Category / Medium: Paintings / Drawings - Acrylic, Mixed Media, Assemblage, Paper Collage
My work is predominantly contemporary abstracts using acrylic and mixed media, although I occasionally create abstracted representational work, using paper collage. The process is my main concern. I start with a color or a mark and proceed one step at a time responding to what is already there. I enjoy creating, testing limits, adding, erasing, making decisions, persevering til I reach a satisfactory resolution.
Growing up, I was left-brained, excelling at math and languages. Art gave the other side of me; the rebellious, contrary, lover of freedom; an outlet. I feel very lucky that art continues to be a joy and a quest for finding my inner self, as well as a respite from a fiercely divided and divisive world.
