The artwork in this selection was inspired by a "Finger Painting in Sand" performance by Ukrainian artist Kseniya Simonova and a visit to the exhibition of Russian Icons at the Museum of Russian Icons in Clinton, Massachusetts.

I began all these pieces working with my fingers in water and water soluble Caran d'Ache crayons on black pre-painted paper.

The pieces developed spontaneously most often without a pre-conceived image which allowed me a more creative approach and outcome.
