Let me introduce myself and my work.

I’m a mixed media artist. I use “exotic” collage paper and found material to construct an abstracted environment for my women. Part of my process is to study landscapes and still lifes, using traditional paint methods, as there is nothing like painting, in order to understand and  absorb one’s surroundings. The abstracted environments in my work come from these studies. Since my move to Virginia in May of 2010 I’m fascinated by vineyards, hay bales and landscapes. I paint my figure into these environments and explore this relationship between figure and background. The relationship is symbolic of my own “being” in the universe – exploring how one is separate, yet inseparable, from one’s space. With every breath, one breathes in part of the world around. In my art, the figure is integrated with the space and the mixed media materials are tightly integrated with each other.
