Artist’s Statement
I paint familiar scenes from novel perspectives.

When I was a little girl, my friends and I would take off for whole days on our bikes and try to get lost in our suburban neighborhood. I remember that the best days were those when we actually were able to lose ourselves. We would realize we were in unfamiliar territory, explore, then find our way back again, and, FINALLY, at the end of the day, return home for dinner. . I lose myself, in painting, and share my journey.

My subjects are the glow of afternoon sun as it warms the side of a white farmhouse, the lights of a city, or the vista across a patterned expanse of the earth. More intimate subjects are still life or figurative. I brush or wipe on layers of luminous oil colors. Then I wipe, scrape, scratch, or layer over my original marks, to obscure or reveal parts of my original explorations.
