Artist Statement

Painting, for me, is about shape and pattern and color.  Reality is where I start, but more and more it becomes a jumping off point to somewhere else – to a paring down of form, a heightening of color, an unexpected color combination. I like working within a theme, and often paint multiple versions of the same subject.  My favorite medium is pastel.  I love pastels for their luscious color, their immediacy, and their dual identity as a painting and drawing tool.

I also like printmaking, collage, and more recently, paper cutting.  These types of works on paper will be available in my Etsy Shop, called StraterPaper.
