"The act of painting is a performance. Mixing the colors can stir the emotions, evoking memories or stimulating buried senses. When a color emerges it brings forth a performance of visual expression; therefore, the immediacy of the medium allows your subconscious and conscious thoughts to meld into a visual poem, a collaged painting. As I work through the materials to create my visual stories, I allow the process to guide me. In the following pages I will share with you some of the processes I experience when creating in the abstract."
