Master of Fine Arts (MFA)
This thesis is presented in journal format and represents a process of painting initiated September 2001 at Louisiana State University. The basis of my paintings can best be described as image oriented mark making. Initially figural images are taken from life drawings then used as starting points to investigate the forms through changes made to their visual properties. Fragments of the images are traced onto paper, manipulated, and then reassembled. This process provides a spring board, a shift from what was recorded earlier by direct observation to images not confined by the requirements of representation.
