Artist Statement:

My recent pieces reflect an ongoing interest in 'automatic drawing' ". My sketchbook is filled with drawings which evolve in an almost hypnotic state. My technique involves assemblage., painted paper with different patterns is cut up and applied in discrete shapes over the service of the wood board. I am intrigued with the consequent irony of applied shapes against painted backgrounds.
