Artist Statement

For the past 18 years, I have taken new directions to create dynamic images of color and movement using acrylic paint on industrial wool.   I use the simplest of forms, often inspired from nature, to create dynamic imagery, and blend color and texture to create rich, vibrant designs. My most recent work uses liquid acrylics and a negative transfer process with self-cut stencils to layer multiple colors on industrial wool (felt) painting surfaces. 

I also use a technique for weaving painted canvas: two canvases of the same size are stretched on frames and are individually painted with acrylic paints. When dry, one is removed from the frame and cut into ½” wide strips.  The second canvas is then, partially cut and the ½” strips are woven into it. I continue weaving the strips until the piece is completely woven into it.  The merged work is then removed from the frame, the edges are glued down and a canvas backing is glued on.

 

 “Joyful Noise” is the key mantra throughout all of my works. Focusing down to the root of all art, I use color, and movement shapes to inspire and excite the mind. My works have no meaning except for expressing the animation of being. White Noise lulls us in to calmness and rest; Joyful Noise is the sound of stimulation.
