I use a symbolic visual language exploring the visible and invisible creating a commentary on relationships and thoughts. As I work the images can be unexpected flowing from gathered memories. I use color to emulate the energy and spirit of nature. Music and rhythm play a role in my process and seeps into the movement of my creation. I use contrasting elements within the layers in a work of art, for instance showing past and present time, or manmade and natural elements, and even style variations. As I build the layers I make connections in my mind and a story comes forth and unfolds. The work evolves, and quite often by the time the painting is finished it has a history of stories within the layers, sometimes revealed sometime interwoven.
