I love exploring new media, discovering a new process, and being surprised with unexpected results! Mixed media lends itself to working with varied textures and multiple layers, thus becoming a metaphor for the diversity and complexity of our own lives and environment. My connection to the world around us, the places I seek as touchstones, and the objects that remind me of the glory of nature and the peace of untouched spaces, is an underlying element in my work. Whether working with a variety of handmade papers, found objects, paint, the luminous textures of copper, or the magic of marbled paper, the work strives for a subtle, harmonious richness that indicates depth, without sacrificing simplicity. For me, exploring these layers and textures and objects expresses the ever-changing nature of the personal landscape.
