My paintings are layers of geometric patterns, stripes and schmears of vivid colors. The built up layers eventually quiet down to create more minimal and subtle paintings. Recently, textile designs by Native American Indians and Bauhaus master Gunta Stolzl have served as spring boards for new paintings. The emphasis is on materials, process and pure visual pleasure. Each painting begins with general motifs and colors in mind but are never fully planned. It’s only through trail and error that the paintings slowly evolve into their own.
