I start with found materials to create form on the canvas, and I play with the texture, manipulating the surface, adding, taking away, and painting layers of nature-inspired motifs.
Landscapes, natural forms, climate change, the consumerist material I use, the greater skies, and and a touch of fantasy inspires my work. My paintings are often layers and layers of different paintings which become parts of the the finished piece. I meditate on the process and allow what is revealed at each step to inform the next. These layers and shifts mimic natural changes that we're experiencing on earth, also speaking to our complicated relationship with living on this planet.
