Watercolor, oil, dye, canvas, paper
My paintings explore the value of symbolism in textiles and folk art. I am inspired when finding common themes in different cultures' use of symbols, such as protection from evil, power, fertility and the tree of life. I work primarily with watercolors, combined with marbling techniques, and often use resist processes on paper and canvas that evokes Batik.
