Creativity for me is much like jumping into cold water. Starting always involves hesitation, and procrastination, but once in the water, I move forward. I feel invigorated and excited to see what happens next. The mixed media work is inspired by organic forms that suggest movement. Mark making with graphite and stitching expresses the visual energy. There is play between the abstracted shapes and layered elements that build work that is nuanced and lyrical.
