On the Third Day God Created Earth
Artist Statement: Jackson Pollack knew that “a painting has a life of its own.” For a painting to be authentic, the artist must put everything she knows about history, craftsmanship, life and her very being into its creation. A painting evolves from the interaction of these components to stand on its own. My paintings may suggest nature, but in my head they are challenges of a color palette, an idea, a moment in time, an experience that had meaning in my life.
