Artist statement

I have created works on paper for the past 30 years, but have not utilized a paint brush since I discovered that I could create art work on my computer. The computer has become the tools of my medium. I then create my composition using a collage of images that I organize in Adobe Photoshop. After that I Import the composition into Corel Painter, a raster-image computer program, on which, working on an overlay or tracing paper I can place each individual dot by clicking on my mouse.

Out if an array of colors my pointillist pieces come to life helping me to construct through the use of these programs, a means of creating a drama consisting of reflections of women's inner stories. While working, I employ elements of
collage in my paintings to conjure up images created from a mixture of fantasy, mood and symbolism, blended together in a variety of ways to create my own world.
