The freedom she feels when painting gives her the opportunity to go wild. The painting is done on Yupo paper which is a type of plastic. Because of this the paint or ink lays on top of the paper instead of being absorbed into it. After applying the paint or ink to the paper she manipulates it, tilting it back and forth until she is pleased with it. Some of her paintings are rather abstract with little or no suggestion as to what it is, leaving the viewer to let their imagination go wild. Other times she adds to the painting and some look rather haunting yet the viewer is still able to let their imagination tell them a story of what is going on in the shadows. Her hope is that the viewers feel some of the joy that she feels when painting them.
