I have been involved in art all of my life. Constructive art had long been the direction that my husband and I took through painting and my work is a continued outcome of that direction.

I see the two dimensional surface as the basis for tension and interaction with shape and the four outside edges. Color is a part of that interaction. Perhaps that vision comes from my years of graphic design, working with a defined two dimension space and it’s restrictions.
