Invention is at the heart of my work. I am not interested in perfecting technique but am most excited solving problems and finding the ingredients needed to make something. The decisions, editing and intuitive process of trying different things until the image emerges. Working in a series gives me the time and space to do this. Like how to make 35 paintings of the same yucca plant 35 different ways. How to tell a story in paintings and collage. How to make a picture of my experience in Australia. How to depict the world as I see it.
