When I started creating again, I had to choose mediums that fit into my life with four young children. I needed convenience, to be able to pick it up and put it down, set it up and clean it up quickly. I started with graphite and charcoal realism drawings and then ventured into monochromatic paintings on paper. My main body of work is continuous line drawings, something I've been doing since my youth. It is natural and organic for me to put my tool to paper and not lift it until the subject is complete. What started as a lifestyle accommodation became an addicting process for me. I feel like my journey in motherhood is often a tug of war pulling me to try to be more carefree one minute and then needing to have more control the next minute. This form of art offers me both the recklessness in creating the form in one continuous line with no worry over proportion or perfection and then the controlled hard-edge painting. In the end, with its imperfect form one of my paintings may be seen differently in the viewer's eyes than it did in mine when I created it.
