My children often work alongside me while I paint, sometimes ontheir own drawings, sometimes they look to my work for ideas, sometimes I borrow their marks. My daughter (3 years old at the time) was working with me on this painting, drawing the red rhythmic marks down the canvas and drawing little squiggly circles with a pencil while she just sang and hummed.
Master of Fine Arts (emphasis in painting and drawing) James Madison University, 2007 My mixed media work is both playful, simply about the joy of painting and mark making, and emotive of deeper meaning brewing beneath the surface. Imagery, color, line and shapes reference both significant experience and memory and also the repetitive, commonplace occurrences of daily life. I draw inspiration from a wide range of sources: Abstract Expressionist painters, my children's mark-making and drawings, design, objects and color from significant memory, Biblical text, and the body.
