Over the years I have worked in a variety of media--handmade paper, wood assemblage, and encaustic--always stiriving to create works rich in color and texture. Collage is often an important part of my work in any media. My studio is filled with stacks of handmade papers, fabrics, geographic maps, postage stamps, buttons, sticks and more. I often embed many of these items from our lives into my works--symbols of our sense of place, our efforts to communicate, and our memories and associations.
In order to create paintings rich in texture and color I use a variety of techniques—including acrylic painting, encaustic painting, and mixed media collage. My collected items can be embedded into the layers of acrylic or encaustic painting creating layers to be revealed at close range. My love for the lyrical and powerful nature of cursive and calligraphic line is evident in it’s use so freely in my work. I believe it can convey emotion, both strong and mysterious.
