Figurative work is an inner journey for me - a personal exploration. Symbols, their mystical meanings and mythology speak to me. Working on canvas, paper or finely gessoed panels using old master's techniques allows me to explore different ways of expression. Tempera on board gives an amazing glow with the application of layer upon layer of fine glazes. Canvas gives a different result. Paper has a direct and unique quality that I love. Paint reflects differently on paper, and charcoal and pencil brings it alive. These works on paper are done in groups. Some fit together to create large wall sized compositions. They can be assembled and reassembled in different sizes.or stand alone. Some pieces below are from a series of Goddesses painted on paper board, 40 inches wide by 60 inches high Some are triptychs, comprised of three paintings.
