For years, I have traveled many continents in search of universal, visual Truths from which to formulate a global unity of forms and symbols. As a result of my search, I use the ratios of irrational numbers such as the Golden Mean Proportion as an underlying architecture to my work. I use simple shapes and forms variously combined and layered with thickly textured materials to explore geometric relationships and to create bas-relief, sculptural effects. I seek wabi sabi materials which have been softened and aged by the earth. I also love materials created by the earth and I find these materials wherever I can in rural Colorado. The found objects, and wall paint texturizers are all held together with vinyl Spackle, paint and acrylic mediums (the binders for acrylic paints).
