I began painting and doing mixed media out of a very primal need to create something with my hands. In the beginning I worked with fabric and cut paper and that soon morphed into a variety of media. Later, I became inspired by Intuitive painters and I began to play with acrylic paints. When I start, I never know where a painting will take me, but I look for balance with colors and patterns while allowing a spacious feeling to remain. I continue to create Intuitive art with both acrylics and mixed media, using a variety of mark-making tools.
