My Journal Series started out as a way to express emotions, thoughts and feelings. It has now evolved over the years. Now I view it as daily growth.
The butterfly has been used as a metaphor in art for many years. For me, it is transformation. As seen in my art; scribbled lines, blotched color emerges into shapes. These "shapes" take flight. As I grow, my work develops and takes flight similar to that of a butterfly.
Layers of acrylic paint, graphite, paper and painted canvas are applied to give the work its unique quality.
