Artist Statement
 
"For me painting is a key to understanding inner feelings, a way of releasing the experiences each of us holds inside, to transfer these feelings onto paper or canvas in order to share them.

Collage presents an opportunity to re-engage the intent of unfinished paintings, to breathe new life into them and to more fully develop their composition. 

There aren't always words to explain internal emotions, but need for expression is the driving force.  My intent is to show the value of using unconscious motivations as a guide for fuller expression."
