Painting - Oil
Working outside in Nature is my love. I am fueled by its wild energy and beauty. Oil sticks are my medium. They are luscious, generous colors that are both paint and a drawing tool. They allow me to make gestural, guttural strokes in color to respond to the moment. My goal is to make paintings that are beautiful, are alive, that speak. Nature is a reference, as it offers infinite colors, shapes, lines, relationships. I paint freely and spontaneously to allow the body to respond directly to what I am seeing. This connection between plant and body - we merge.
