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  finished works, from 2000-2008. The top two rows are recent collages done as preparatory explorations for the more recent acrylic paintings on Sintra board in 2019. They use motifs and imagery from previous sources with improvised line, pattern and texture from nature. With their combined imagery, I call them Restless Forms.
