As an artist, I have been fortunate to create meaningful work in various media. For me, if my work doesn’t have a solid foundation and contributes to the world, it has no meaning. I have explored socio/political issues, primarily overcrowding and overpopulation. As I progress in my life, looking deeper becomes more meaningful. How I have evolved as a being is measurable in my connection to the earth, its beings, the decisions I make, my relationships and the roads I travel.
My work centers on balance, harmony and the integration of contradiction/contrast and the opposition of themes, color and form. Color intrigues me. Brash/vibrant/bold. Quiet/moody/detached. Atmospheric and energetic; color is the vehicle in which our innermost experiences are brought to the surface and experienced. The division of shapes and spaces fascinates me. As human beings, we divide the spaces in which we live, work and play. My abstract compositions play with the division of space and how spaces and shapes relate to each other.
I work in the abstract by choice; it challenges me, and invites the viewer to evoke their own personal experiences and emotions.
Growing up in a rural area of Connecticut, I felt solace in the natural environs of wooded areas, observing how things grew, changed and evolved; how brilliantly the sun shone, how lucid the colors of nature are, and how rapidly a day was able to evolve from dry to wet, grey to bright sky. My childhood travels to New York City with family exposed me to a different world of geometric shapes in the massive buildings of the city skyline; it is in this space of my imagination that I combine the two contrasting ideologies. I express the distinction between organic and industrial by the vivid use of color and texture. Line and color are the main design elements utilized to construct my imagery. Although still intrigued by the workings of urban life and its implications on humanity,
I studied textile design, fashion styling, color, and sewing construction techniques with many acclaimed teachers, and developed my personal style after many years of studio practice in other artistic disciplines.
I work in the abstract by choice; it challenges me, and invites the viewer to evoke their own personal experiences and emotions. Contributing to overcrowding has been part of my dilemma; working with tangible physical materials and the accumulation of supplies with which to create that work has made me feel more of an accomplice than a solution, so I move into working more minimally, combining digital assets with analog collage. Collage is a medium which has intrigued and fascinated me for many years. The ability to create thought provoking images with various elements, both digital and analog, is a new way for me to express current and past experiences in my life and reality.
