I have always been moved by color and texture and found a new joy in playing with paints and various objects to create my own mixed media combinations. I enjoy exploring what can be created using different mediums, textures, paper and objects. More recently I have found the world of monotypes and what is to be discovered by applying multiple layers of patterns and colors. I utilize any object that has an interesting pattern including but not limited to pre-made and home-made stencils, stamps, masks and mark making tools.

In my monotypes I strive for a combination of patterns and colors that evoke texture. When I sit down to paint I sometimes have an idea in mind and sometimes I just play. The finished work always comes out different than I anticipated which keeps the process exciting. It does challenge me to leave behind preconceived notions of what the completed piece will look like and to embrace the unknown.
