The subjects and styles I choose are primarily organic in nature and often whimsical. Nature is hugely influential in my work. Sometimes materials are used in traditional ways and other times my intent is to question convention with “displacement of defined roles.”
For me, art happens purposefully and accidentally. Sometimes the path is specific. Other times it begins with a thought, or random mark on paper that becomes something new. Fluidity is important. We change our minds, our moods, our clothes, our environment and, as a result, our art and it’s processes change too.
For the past 4 years I have had the most fun employing combinations of techniques and materials in my various pieces. This is visible in my paintings, mosaics, sculpted art work, and teaching.
