My work is a very serendipitous process which continues to evolve.  I use abstraction in various degrees.  Currently I am exploring the process of abstract intuitive painting. .  Some of my paintings are easily read as Landscape while others just explore Color, Shape, Line and Texture.  I use water media and a variety of materials, pencil, crayon, paper collage, including gels and mediums.
Paintings begin with me standing in front of a blank canvas, picking up a brush filled with whatever color has excited me. My soul is free to explore. It’s totally creative and you never know what it will end up looking like. I love it.
