As an artist, I work entirely from my intuition. From the very first mark I make. One mark leads to the next. The act of layering, scratching, adding and removing fascinates me and is what I do to leave behind subtle suggestions of the marks that came before. Like remembrances of past experiences. I work from the abstract expressionist attitude that incorporates a conscious mark while embracing the scuffs, stains and drips of my work. There are no mistakes, only history of where I've been. The constant change is a beautiful metaphor for my life. In 2014 things changes for me and so did my art. I found out I had breast cancer. Not in one but both breasts. I'm now 4 years breast cancer free! As I went through chemo I didn't have a lot of energy so I had a big canvas and whenever I could I added to it... almost on a daily basis. That one painting kept my spirits up and kept my mind busy. Most of my art before the cancer was pretty neutral in color. Now I can't use enough color! And I find that pink is my favorite! I hope my art inspires others who had gone through or are going through cancer. Art heals! The cycle of my art is only complete after the joy I had completing them is shared with other souls through the connections of my work.
