DESCRIPTION: Paintings, Unframed, Acrylic on canvas - painted gallery wrapped edges

ARTIST STATEMENT: My paintings begin with my observations of the natural world. Through the physical act of painting, mixing and applying color, I engage in an intuitive call and response with the visual memory and the canvas. When considering titles, I draw upon my interest in language, poetry, and word play. Tenacity was inspired by pin oak and beech leaves hanging on to their branches through the winter, a phenomenon called marcescence.
