Ready to Hang

The reason I chose the title for this piece is because of the reference to subject matter of a scenic byway, fields, hills and sky.

I created this piece after returning from a long drive to Tennesee and back from Virginia.

My inspiration in creating this piece is the abstraction of our landscape environments that we spend our daily lives in.

Bio My mental association with something: a place, the angle of the sun in a memory, stories when there is nothing else left of their subjects, is my departure point when creating my work. I learn much about my association with the context during the process and I get a sense of resolution in this. I receive immense gratification knowing that I have animated what is lifeless into a boisterous celebration of energy and life or a hauntingly elegant study in subtlety. Dimensionally rich in layers and textures, and held together by articulate color plays, I create pieces that beg intimate investigation, and reward again and again upon repeated visitations. My work has been published in a book featuring international artists. I hold a BA in fine arts, am internationally collected, as well as in many many private collections in the United States.
