All of my paintings begin the same way, a ritual of collage onto canvas or paper. Next I layer transparent paint, poured, spattered and brushed. After days of layering paint and collage I set a painting on my easel, turning it this way and that; I look into the chaos of color until I begin to see an image. Every painting tells me what it wants to become. Beginning with chaos and confusion, I work toward clarity. Each painting is a journey and each contains a lesson for me. I am so grateful.
