I've always loved the color of cyanotype prints. As a child I loved creating these sun-exposed prints and now many years later I have revisited the technique. The deep cyan was the inspiration for this color palette. The base of this nautical-inspired piece was constructed entirely of paper collage from vintage sailing maps, charts, watercolor paper, envelops, and paper ephemera. I then layered acrylic paint over the bars to create a painting. The paper collage is still visible through the paint to create interest. “Earth's crammed with heaven, And every common bush afire with God, But only he who sees takes off his shoes; The rest sit round and pluck blackberries.” ― Elizabeth Barrett Browning

Throughout my education in photography I worked to combine diverse materials and techniques with various photographic processes. That love of experimentation has continued today as I explore mixed-media collage and abstract acrylic painting in my latest body of work. My collage pieces consist of found and reclaimed paper ephemera repurposed into energetic, abstract color-scapes. I have an extensive collection of blue prints, vintage road maps, book pages, letters of correspondence and various other source items which evoke the nostalgia of my Midwestern upbringing and roots of my artistic cultivation. Inspiration is derived from the inherent meaning in these documents and when combined with layers of paint, three-dimensional objects, photo transfer, etc. I build upon the original history of the material and create an enhanced narrative. My latest body of abstract acrylic paintings uses my familiar grid motif as a compositional framework. Color theory, balance, texture, and intuition all play an important role in the creation of this work. The satisfying actions of mixing colors and applying paint with a palette knife make the process of studio time very meditative. The paintings take shape organically with each color applied meticulously to conceal or reveal the layer below. One color choice dictates the next until an overall rhythmic harmony is achieved.
