Piece description from the artist
Dance! emerged out of several failed attempts to create an image that was both serene and energetic. I folded cold wax and marble dust into oil paint in order to build soft texture that was folded around a dynamic graphic. I love the push and pull of abstract art and here I hope that I accomplished that effect by using rich mediums instead of cool and warm color.
Although I was always a creative, it wasn’t until I studied oil painting with the late Italian Oil Painter Enrico Donati that I understood that art was one of my intended paths. My work with Donati laid a formal classical foundation that served me well through my evolution from a traditional painter to my current abstract style.
Today my paintings are process driven and develop organically in-studio. They celebrate color, form, line and shape, and they share dynamic, surreal, lyrical qualities that are clearly grounded in my early work and study. My goal is to step away from intention and create intuitive, reflective yet dynamic work. I continue to honor the miles of traditional landscapes and seascapes that got me here, and I often wonder what Enrico would think of my work today.
As an inducted juried member and Board member of the National Association of Women Artists, I currently exhibit extensively in solo, juried, and group shows throughout New England. I am also a wearable art designer and I have recently launched a line of textile designs using my original paintings as my design inspirations.
‘I believe that my work is a reflection of my personal truths,
even though I may fail to see or understand it myself.
My pieces say different things to different viewers,
which is really the fun of it. ‘
