I travel each painting and collage, a complete journey. I am interested in suspending any sense of accustomed ideas of order. I want to surprise myself.
I may begin with a drawing or move directly into a painting.
Where will this journey take me? How will the forms interact? I want to find out. It is an intimate relationship with each work.
The figures, structures and forms in my work locate and rearrange themselves yet maintain their tension to exist.
A ripple effect occurs as the work proceeds. I find myself stretching beyond the borders of my expectations.
I capture these excursions with each painting and collage.
