Life is a mysterious journey and my current body of work honors the profound as well as the mundane of human experiences. With a nod to my Southern upbringing I often combine paint with found materials that contain a past history. The layered surfaces and partially obscured images echo the cycle of life and passage of time. I blend organic, abstract and representational forms to express personal experiences and emotions.
