Since my retirement from teaching, I am finally allowing myself time to explore my craft fully. I am rediscovering the thrill of creating dynamic abstract paintings that capture the eye with color and spatial play. The fluid and forgiving nature of oil paint on a large scale canvas helps make my ‘in the moment’ compositions unique. I enjoy getting lost in time and space as part of my painting process. It is this interplay that creates the surprise endings and ever present joy I find in my work.
