Until 9 years ago, I was a liberal arts academic not doing art at all. These days II work in acrylic, collage, and mixed media. I paint in a primarily intuitive, adventurous, and experimental way, resulting in abstract or non-representational pieces, using multiple layers and creating a rich, complex tapestry. For me, a successful painting evokes an emotional response on the part of the viewer, even when no identifiable subject is depicted. I am grateful for my life in art!
