“This series of polymer clay paintings and objects is a returning to a process in painting and imagery I was working with seven years ago. These ideas are made fresh by working with polymer clay as opposed to the paint I used.
I have found that the adding and subtracting of layers, a process I often use, works very well with polymer clay. It is my intention to make imagery that is evocative of landscape, still life and narration. I look for questions that are more satisfying when left unanswered.”
