I make abstract paintings using gouache on paper and mixed media. I am an expressionist. Color and chaos collide on the paper to create boisterous displays of animated patterns. The direction of the painting, its’ movement and focus reveal itself to me with each mark.
For most of my life I have lived, exhibited my work, and taught painting in Massachusetts. I moved to Manhattan in 2012. The change in location and medium precipitated a period of experimentation in my work. I abandoned the image, and it was liberating. Color, movement and gesture are the stars of the show.
I have recently returned to Massachusetts, and I am looking forward to sharing this new body of work.
