Painting are my writing. I love mixing colors, papers and media
Early in my career, a writer friend used one word to describe my art:
[ˈpaləm(p)ˌsest] n. 1. a manuscript or piece of writing material on which the original writing has been effaced to make room for later writing but of which traces remain. 2. something reused or altered but still bearing visible traces of its earlier form.
I immediately embraced palimpsest as “my” word as well as my process.
I love mixing colors, mixing papers, mixing media, and even mixing metaphors, to create abstract paintings that have been "layered up" to capture a mood, a moment, an object, or an idea while still leaving traces of the marks from the earliest stages of my process.
My work has been accepted into nationally and regionally juried exhibits in California,Colorado,Illinois, Louisiana,New York,Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, and Washington.
