"Everything I see in my world filters into my work as an artist: landscapes, clouds, the composition of my stone walls, arrangements of special items on a shelf. I work with several media--wood, paper, canvas. I also use many recycled and found objects. Mostly I enjoy working with the small scale collage, especially playing with copper leaf and ink. My large scale works are often three dimensional, and my medium varies. In the past, I have incorporated bold colors, using lots of black to define my shapes. Now I gravitate to layers of soft, muted colors blending painting until the right color arrives."
