My love of pattern and color informs all my work. I am very interested in finding ways to depict 3-dimensions in a two dimensional medium. Multiple shapes and images are layered to bring the viewer into the piece. My foremost concern is to provide pleasure to the viewer which I feel must be transmitted from my direct joy in the experience of making art.
During the pandemic, painting outside in the warm weather is bliss! And, if I can bring a smile that's even better. The abstract basis of the outdoor work was inspired by the 100th anniversary of the Bauhaus- the legendary Art and design school. I have loved Kandinsky always and done abstracts always, but my interest was renewed when I started attending the Roaring Fork Drawing Club. We all get together and doodle away, sometimes outside, sometimes in a bar or restaurant. Sometimes the life of a maker is a bit isolated and the drawing club allows us to hang-out with a focus.
