I am a Geometric Abstract Intimist that operates out of a collage-space tradition. My watercolors emanate from small 6″ x 4″ paper collages. I express various emotional situations using a layering process in order to create visual drama-via opposites, that equates to the pulse of life! I agree with Kandinsky that the circle is the most peaceful shape and that it represents the human soul. In my work I hope TO PRESENT (inside to out) rather than REPRESENT (outside to in).
