I am a painter and printmaker. My work is mostly abstract in style and is inspired by science, maps, rock formations, the landscape, and sometimes even dreams. I primarily favor acrylic, gouache, and ink. In the past year, I have begun to explore the integration of painting and printmaking in mixed media works.
My studio is a small bright space at Gallery 3 in Sperryville. I paint intuitively, allowing images to emerge and evolve in whatever way feels “right”. I love playing with color; collage; bold mark-making; layers; patterns from watery drips; and metallic glints in my work. Often I start with one idea, but end up going in a completely different direction along the way. This mysterious process of creative exploration is fun and deeply fulfilling.
