My attraction to patterns and layering imagery is a source of intrigue for me; it has a life of its own. My initial idea is usually related to the patterns within nature, human or wild. The process I use gives my intuition an open door, as control escapes me. Painting with wax and layering mixed media with acrylic is a sensual process, sharing with the natural world a beauty, which hauntingly expresses the passage of time. Scraping through the layers reveals hidden patterns and surprises that relate to human nature as well as our social world.
