Artist Statement My subject matter is found through guided imagery using knowledge and intuition of the world as I feel it. My work represents elements of the natural world and spiritual world. I consider my works drawings because I use my hand, fingers, sand paper and other tools in addition to brushes to push different mediums on paper. I am inspired by the work of these modernists: Clyfford Still for vertical and horizontal movement, Hans Hoffman for displacement of form, Lee Krasner for gesture, George Rouault for strong line, and Agnes Martin, for silence. I feel gratitude when I achieve balance of the familiar and unfamiliar, allowing me complete freedom from the material world.
