Artist StatementI am an American visual artist living and working in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico.
I received a BA in painting at the Rhode Island School of Design in 1987. My work can be seen in numerous collections around the world.
Working in multiple layers of transparent organdy, and using ink and brush, I create an illusion of moments of time suspended; ghost-like images that appear to float on air. Compositions that hover between figurative and abstraction; Limbs and faces come into sharp focus while others disappear into the background.
A sense of mystery creeps in.
Some pieces are connected only at the top, leaving the rest of the fabric to flow freely with the natural breezes in the room while other pieces are displayed in boxes that are open on either end.
I have experimented with many formats including tracing paper, glass, and plexiglass over the past few years, and have instead come up with my own unique method of using fabrics and my own inks to create something totally new that depicts in an exciting way my view of the world.
