My paintings are combinations of layered colors, movements and various textures. I start with ideas about color, texture, line, and composition, then engage in a deliberate process of emphasizing the topography of the painting using ink or graphite. This process promotes an interchange between the painting and me. In my work I have always been conscious of creating a dichotomy: soft edge/hard edge; straight mark/curved mark; warm tones/cool tones while using color and line. For me, there is a narrative woven into the creation of my work, where in the end, the patterns, symbols and maps within, will be discovered by the viewer.
