Our lives are so layered with meaning...physically, emotionally and spiritually. No matter what I am perceiving, the impression is filtered through layers of time and experience. My paintings have become increasingly layered as I continue to explore the depths that make up my experience of being here. As events, reactions, and interpretations accumulate year after year, the picture becomes denser. These paintings reflect my search to find and illuminate the spots of truth that shine through the sometimes unreliable memory.
The process of creating these paintings is revelatory as I paint, remove, overpaint, cut apart and reassemble each piece.
I never know where the process will take me...I only know that I fall in love anew each time I surrender and accept the guidance that is just on the other side of control.
