Through opaque color, quick mark-making, and flat shape, a vibrant personal world of recognizable character is made. These various paintings, images and works on paper inspire one another, made through oil paint, acrylic paint, oil pastel, chalk pastel, charcoal, and ink. The images are inspired and sourced from dreams, folktales, intuition, religion and feelings of life that hide in everyday shadows. They are made in response to being, and draw sometimes ambiguous, other times obvious, influence from Catholicism, gender, and archetype. They come from the deep itch to cover, mark, adorn, release, record, process, and are produced quickly. Each is time and body specific, completed in one to two realized work sessions.
