Here is her artist statement. I paint images primarily in acrylics, powders, watercolors, pencils and collage. I find that working with this unique palette offers faster drying times, enabling me to overlay color in one painting session, giving the work its tapestry-like background. I often incorporate found objects into my paintings, such as coins from around the world, specialty papers, magazine print and interesting treasures I find on the street. Even my nearly discarded paintings are given new life and recycled into newer works of art, thus creating texture and dimension.
The visions that you see before you are the result of internal communication that require expressions of acceptance, pride, adoration and dignity. In creating these images I have come to appreciate that artists have been granted diverse narratives, meaning each artist has his/her own voice.
Art expresses itself and when it moves the heart and awakens the spirit, it makes no distinction as to its originator. Framed and ready for hanging. Please see photos for details and texture of painting.
