I am an abstract painter. I paint non-objectively on a variety of flat surfaces including paper and distressed drop cloths that were part of my husband’s house painting business. My vocabulary is basic geometric shapes – squares, circles, triangles, and diamonds. I cut stencils from wood, cardboard, and paper and apply the paint in patterns and layers. The conversation is about repetition, movement, and paths of color. In some paintings there is sewing - a piecing together of fragments, a patching of a rip, or an additional shape. I work small, medium, and large.
