Artist Statement

I am a Mixed media painter working in the manner of Origami tradition (the art of folding paper). In my case, the canvas serves as the paper, and the gentle manipulation of its surface is how I convey intricate textural landscapes. The multiple layers of colors in my folded canvases are revealed by sanding the canvas surface. Interested in the juxtaposition and vitality of collaged pieces of canvas, I use them to accentuate other emerging shapes in my compositions.
