"For my FUSIONS series, I created two abstract watercolors for each woven work by action painting them side-by-side using squeegees and splashes.  I then deconstructed both into geometric strips that intuitively intertwined.  In doing so, I was able to unite, reorganize, and augment the visual space of the original organic images, making a total of eight grid-like amalgamations that are ultimately more creative, compelling, and complete."
