My Abstract paintings may start with an object, an idea or a feeling.  During the painting process, searching and experimenting take place.  My intention is to use elements and principles of design to create interesting textures, colors and combinations of shapes.  Objects and places often loose their realistic identity.  However, I sometimes use realistic images as part of a collage, creating sections of realism in an abstract design.  ​​​​
