This painting is part of a series exploring intertwining and overlapping organic forms. In this piece, I wanted to see how several of these forms could interact with each other by having two of them squeeze through a hole in a third form.
About the artist:
For as long as I can remember, I wanted to be a painter. My childhood was spent drawing, sketching, painting, designing...and being a typical tomboy. Then I studied painting and drawing at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, graduating with a BFA in 1992.

My early work was thoroughly grounded in representational paintings and drawings--landscapes, figures, and still lifes. But a deeper love for the beauty of the elements of painting unencumbered by a recognizable object or scene has led me on a search for my own abstract vocabulary.

My interest is in how to manipulate the basic elements of color, form and composition to discover different ways that paint inhabits and defines a surface. In some of my work, I like to emphasize the brushwork, allowing the brushstrokes to form the shapes at times becoming one, like the blood and bones of Chinese calligraphic strokes. In other series, I am discovering the beauty of organic forms or forms from science, from the micro to the macro. Still other works deal primarily with color relationships.

I work in a variety of media; depending on the imagery involved, I may choose to develop a piece in oil, acrylic, watercolor, encaustic, ink, drawing materials or mixed media.

My work is self-informing: I begin with a basic idea, a color and a brushstroke or two, and then each stroke leads to the next. The process is organic and evolutionary, allowing the work to take on a life of its own.

I have exhibited my work in juried and invitational local and national exhibitions. My paintings and prints are collected in private collections across the country and abroad.
