Ready to Hang

The reason I chose the title for this piece is because of the landscape reference alluding to America's scenic byways.

I created this piece after returning to my studio from a long drive to Tennesee from Virginia as the fields were waking up and opening themselves up to spring.

Subtle temperature changes and pops of color weave together a delightful abstract landscape.

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.
