Artist Statement

I use tag sale items and unwanted household kitchen objects to make patterns. Lately I’ve been thinking of how line and color can be two separate things. I’ve always thought color informs shape. But now I see it as a totally different way of expression; an element separate from line.

PATTERN BUILDS STRUCTURE and repeating pattern has power. The dots are a reference to Lichtenstein but not specificity for that, is to celebrate the difference between the automatic marks and the gestural brush work.
