Program Description


For this artist there is harmony between abstraction and figuration. They both allow for a delicacy and boldness that stems from an interaction between line, color and balance. 

Of her multi-media figurative work the artist states: "I appreciate and exploit the sensitivity of working from life by creating both delicate drawings and bold paintings. I do them on both paper and polyester film utilizing acrylic paint, charcoal pencils, soft pastels, oil pastels, watercolor and pastel pencils.

Of her abstract work the artists states: "my multi-media abstract work is often more dramatic and experimental in both my paintings and prints. I am a printmaker who travels between monotypes, pronto plate lithographs, dry points and carborundum prints that are done on either paper or film.
