She says: "My paintings are abstract explorations of color, texture, line, shape, and space. They are frequently influenced by real subjects, such as Turkish Kilms, sea grass,...or old weathered gourds.I am an artist interested in process as well as concept. I usually paint directly with oils on linens. Surfaces frequently include sand, bits of handmade paper, horsehair, and other mixed media."
