Inspiration for these paintings comes from living in Long Island, New Jersey, Colorado and Venezuela, the strong forms and colors found in Georgia O’Keefe’s, Sean Scully’s and Nuala Clarke’s paintings, years of moving from one place to another, and my work as a psychotherapist. I work with acrylics. . . first covering the paper with one or more colors, then building on the images that emerge from inside me, and stopping the process when I feel a sense of calm, order and resolution. I am fascinated by the light that comes from unexpected places, the impact of structure and the subtlety of color.
