These latest works combine abstraction and illusion in a somewhat theatrical or surreal event. Working in a collage sensibility, images coalesce and collapse almost simultaneously, skirting the edge of illusion and abstraction. Fragments of paintings, drawings both hand and digital, play a big role in the crafting of space in these works. Each painting attempts to hold on to a moment led by the subconscious and bordering on slipping away.

Recent Tufting Paintings

This past year I wanted to return to using embroidery in my works on canvas but this time I worked with punch needle and rug tufting. I see these as paintings in yarn and plan to continue with mixed media sewn works combining paint on canvas with rug tufting.
