Silk of the Spark
I was a very little girl when I became excited about art. My first box of crayons was the most precious gift I have ever been given. The colors around me, from the blue of the sky, the first robin’s egg that I saw, to the rainbows on an oil slick pavement, still, to this day, provide me with a huge vocabulary to express myself.
My subject matter is actually the “process” of painting itself. Each layer I use gives me information for the next. I find this a challenging and illuminating experience. It pushes me further into the discovery of new possibilities. This painting reflects my individual method of layering colors and marks. The colors that are immediately apparent are a result of the layers that have come before. Without this foundation, I would get totally different results. I call upon familiar and experimental methods of applying paint and marks. Some of these decisions fall short, but every move is informative, exhilarating and has unknown potential.
