About the Artist / Artist Statement
Painting is meditation. There is a tension between reality and the abstract and I am continuously fascinated by the beauty it creates. When painting realism, I struggle to loosen my control and inverse, when painting abstractly, I desperately seek the familiar. I find the complexity and process of building layers, texture and lines the most satisfying. At the end, perhaps only a suggestion of the original layer remains, but understand that even those layers that are unseen, are a part of the foundation. The painting cannot exist without them. I have been painting for more than 20 years, but have just recently begun making pieces available. I am in the communications field and a graphic designer by day. Painting is a decompression and translator of my inner world. Every painting has a story that reveals a small glimpse into a moment or period of my life. I work with molding pastes, inks, acrylics, charcoals, oil mediums and glazes.
