Mixed media techniques answer an ongoing need for a working method with maximum immediacy, allowing me to impose quick decisions and move beyond the formality of painterly representation. It reflects a composite sensibility based on fragments of visual memory. Using transparent, pliable materials such as mylar and rice paper, I combine techniques from painting, monoprint and collage. Some of these were done as large-scale finished works, from 2000-2008. The first 9 and most recent collages are from 2017/2018 and represent small-scale experimental studies combining some of the quilt motifs with improvised line, color and textures from previous sources.
