Artist Statement

Mixed media materials including paper, watercolor, acrylic, pastel, marker, thread, fabric, photographs and beads along with other objects invite themselves into my work. Exploding with textile rich surfaces, each piece is one of a kind. Some finished with a hand built box frame, presented without glass to encourage the viewer to become intimate with the work. I am driven by the joy of creation and revel in unexpected happenstance that accompanies me when I work, prefering to leave interpretation and analysis to the viewer.
