Certain ideas have always grabbed my attention and sustained my interest. These concepts surface at unexpected times. Written phrases, overheard conversations or sights trigger these notions. Mental impressions arise when hearing meaningful words or phrases. Witnessing repetitive behavior or visual scenes can bring on a similar response.
Important ideas that surface are psychological traits or instincts in all humans/ birds/fish and animals. Thoughts of evolution (change) and the human mind complexities are significant. Once these ideas or patterns are acknowledged, the haunting question arises, "What if?…” This is where exciting creativity comes in as I sift and sort visuals in my mind’s eye.
Written language can be filled with multiple meanings, levels of thought and subtext. Double-layered meanings are endlessly intriguing. I am drawn to paper collage, drawing and painting because they best represent our visual world in all of its mysteries.
