    Having always been inspired by natural elements, I lean towards working with untreated and handmade papers or raw canvas. The textures and elements of the materials I choose have unique characteristics and have profound effects on the way a piece can look and feel when applied with different mediums. Much of my time before beginning a piece will be contemplation on what materials are best suited for the inspired subject matter.

    I feel my pieces are each individual, expressive and emotional creations that emerge from an intentional tonal background created specific to each subject. The textured or ink splotched paper or canvas are usually created in stages, normally with a lapse of time in between. The forms, textures or shapes that emerge, then tell me the story of what will come next.

    I feel I celebrate the absence of color, and love to bring to life the beauty in rich values and contrasts of my favorite media.
