In my art as well as in my photography, my first priority is strong abstract design, often to the extent that I ignore subject matter altogether. My art includes mixed aquamedia on paper, collage, paper mosaics, and assemblage of found objects. I enjoy combining my art with my photos, sometimes making digital alterations to create an entirely new image. Fractal and digital design are among my new interests. Photography is still very much a challenge for me – getting it right. I take comfort in the words of Ansel Adams: “Twelve significant photographs in any one year is a good crop.” I am fascinated by the concept of serendipity – the spontaneous discovery of one thing while searching for another. I rarely plan my art. I prefer to LET it happen rather than MAKE it happen.
