I am drawn to figurative work as a personal exploration. Symbols and their mystical meanings and mythology inspire me. Working on canvas, paper, finely gessoed panels and wooden board and using different techniques allows me to explore different means of expression. Tempera on board is wonderful. It gives an amazing glow with the application of layer upon layer of fine glazes. Canvas gives a very different result, as does working on paper. My works on paper are often done in groups that fit together to create large wall sized compositions. They can be assembled and reassembled in different sizes.
