This new work is representative of my path, which is inspired by adventure and independence, and my love of color and texture. For me travel is a major catalyst for my evolving themes and artistic practice. I am exploring spontaneous, gestural marks and subtle female forms through abstraction.
I attempt to show the steps of picture making. Layers are integral to my imagery and process; I employ underpainting, graphite lines, and subtractive techniques to infuse a work with multiple surfaces. Color and shape are both organic and intuitive and feminine, and inspired by the natural beauty of the Irish splendor.
