These paintings are based upon topography. I combined the ideas of fields, patterns and layers. Through the use of color and texture, I create depths of field. I have started to introduce nailed patterns with wire, which are from memories of my past childhood experiences. The whimsy of string art combined with the sophistication of rice papers, printed fabrics, and oil on birch board create a fascinating surface. These paintings are a result of many works that I have done previously, and are now more contemporary in nature.
