I have lived in beautiful bucolic upper Bucks County most of my adult life. The country has been the inspiration for much of my art: the scenery, countryside, and plant/animal life. I was fascinated with plant morphology, precision, and patterns/organization which was evident in my early botanical paintings.
I am now more intrigued by chaos, fragility in life, emotionality, and discord than structured/predictable beauty. I find beauty, spirituality, metaphor, and deep emotion, even "a story" in the chaos. In a way one could say I've "let go" of control and predictability in my work (a metaphor for my own life).
My signature drawing style entails intricate, bold, energetic, and poetic markings. My lines are created with charcoal, ink (I often draw with string dipped in ink), pastels and plaster that are drawn, erased, scratched and/or incised into. I use a limited color palette of subdued colors and, black and white. My surfaces are sometimes prepared with poured acrylic paint and Venetian plaster. Read more
