In these acrylic paintings, I explore layers of paint and pattern. To me
these layers represent time
and dimension, possibly like wallpaper peeled from a wall of an old
removal of one layer exposes a different layer reminiscent of another
Often I paint certain elements in the images black and white,
intention is to create a contrast between the black and white figures and
elaborate surface around them. I believe this "contrast" works to induce
reference to another reality. Sometimes I use classical female figures
Goddesses and Madonnas. These figures are spiritual in effect, possibly
for the creative process or my presence as an artist within the work.
Also I have traveled often to Mexico and have been enriched by the
country's colors, designs, religious shrines, and festivities have
influenced my work. I
attribute a stronger sense of artistic freedom directly to my experiences
Because of my experiences in Mexico, I was able to consider inventive
around my work. My crazy frames are a part of the work, offering added
impact to the
image. My intention in some work is for the frame to give a shrine
quality or icon-like
effect. They are cut from wood called baltic
