artist statement

The paintings in my nail polish series are really based in line and drawing, keeping in the true spirit of Ellsworth Kelly’s automatic drawings. The lines that make up the pieces reflect ideas of human life for me. They all start the same and end the same, but the path that each line takes creates the composition. The paintings are rather liberating to make.  I select the size, colors and arrangement. The lines activate the pure white space, leaving a document on the action as an artifact.
