The Heart Wants What the Heart Wants
While exploring subject matter that interests me, I build up layers using various types of paint, pencils, pastels, charcoal, ink, and other mediums. I experiment with the materials and then respond to what I have done. It becomes a dialog between me and the work in progress, until the piece tells me it is finished. My wish is to create a sense of mystery and ambivalence, where reality is momentarily suspended, evoking the viewer’s own feelings and experiences.
