I love this language of drawing, painting and collage! As my point of refuge, my safe harbor, each responsive mark embodies what I question, what I long for. Prompted by a cognitive and intuitive process, my work begins with no fixed result in mind. This origin invites abandon and discovery, unveiling and celebrating the uncertainty and ambiguity in life. Line, form and space converge and intertwine, folding and unfolding, revealing my fascination with ‘the open and unencumbered’. Translucency transforms the illusion of linear time. Complexity and subtlety intrigue me, allowing for limitless associations driven by my mind’s impulse and desire.
