MIAMI Series

Sea and Sky

The Miami series began in the midst of a brutal New Jersey winter. In an attempt to bring some color into my life, I bought yards of blue and green fabric. I was transported into the world of taffeta, chiffon, organza—their names alluring.

I begin by adhering fabric to the paper, canvas or cigar box with which I’m working. The fabric is used to create large areas of flat color. It is cut randomly and roughly to create edges and frays that are especially expressive. I paint over the fabric to modulate the color and build up a rich, textural surface.
