A created thing is unique, brought into being by imagination and using unusual techniques and ideas. In my work I try to avoid the commonplace, routine or ordinary. My way of doing this is by using materials not ordinarily used by other artists. Such as thin silk fabric hand painted, inked or dyed by myself, different papers painted by myself and anything I can use to embellish the surface of the support I choose like gels, gesso, organic objects or anything that will make the mark or design I want. I dearly love tactile surfaces and color.
