"I am seduced by the shadows created by the sun coming in at an angle, early in the morning or late in the afternoon. This light abstracts shapes within shapes and color within color. The forms, patterns, textures, tensions and color all excite my eye. Using pastels or oil paint I push and pull working for the balance that registers the emotional pull of the subject matter." - MaryBeth Koeze
