Working with texture is a great way to experience abstract painting. For the past several years I have been using the elements of design as a language for my artwork. My favorite design elements are line, color, and texture! I think I can say just about anything I want to say with these three elements, and I usually make one of them the dominant element with others contributing.
I have been painting for many years in several different media and have won awards in juried shows and had one-woman and small group shows. The learning aspect of painting has been a great joy and driving force for me. For the past few years I have become interested in abstract work and have been studying how to understand abstract work and how to do it.
