Artist Statement Submitted 2017

My recent body of work is a series of geometric drawings and paintings that stem from my on-going interest in Folk Art Quilts and pattern design. I borrow traditions from quilt making using improvisation, contrast, multiple patterns, and shifts in scale. I incorporate colors, textures, and structures representative of my natural surroundings in South Florida. The combination of translucent inks and watercolors with opaque gouache and acrylics, create movement, flow, contrast and continuity. They are all finished with embroidery reminiscent of the traditional handwork they are all originally inspired by.
