drawing, fine craft, painting

Art making is an intuitive process for me. It may begin with an idea but typically there is no plan.  Splashes of color or lines on the canvas invite me into the painting. There I find images that are literal or abstract. My paintings are an appeal to an emotion. This process is a place where I can get lost in my own reality.
