For more than ten years I have been creating mixed media collage paintings that transport outside elements to interior spaces. Through my paintings, I strive to create an environment, capture a moment, and share an experience. I use texture to build a surface that is structural, atmospheric and tactile. Like the great Matisse, I too ‘paint with scissors’. Beautiful papers from around the world are collected, cut, and layered within my paintings like a tapestry. Sophisticated color palettes are combined with botanical undertones to create paintings that remind us of the peace and beauty around us and within us.
