I began using paper as a textural material on the surfaces of my abstract paintings over 30 years ago when I was an emerging artist living in New York City. Even as I experimented with different approaches, it became clear that the haptic properties and processes I was exploring in my paintings established a unique connection with viewers based on their own experiences of the same physical acts I had used to make them. As a result, my work has evolved to primarily address and enhance this haptic relationship.
