I start each studio day with lots of coffee and sometimes, a Safeway apple fritter.
On the canvas, color and form begin as visual dialogue... a conversation. Images develop from layers of acrylic glaze that build from bottom to top as I intertwine drawing and painting in the composition.
Story making and short vignettes from a world I know and experience. A world of my own creation where I get to pretend.
A world I know well where secret places reveal themselves to me as a whisper, a knowing, a longing, or a prayer ...I love to paint!
