When beginning a painting, I try to do so without a preconceived idea of a desired outcome.  To bypass my thinking mind and just paint, trusting that one thing will always lead to the next, is thrilling.  I love to paint with abandon.  I begin with a quick drawing, with graphite or charcoal in wet gesso.  I then build a painting using layers of oil paint and more graphite.  I paint fast.  Hopefully I express something authentic that is beyond words. 

I dedicate my work to all those who experienced severe early trauma.  My recent work has increasingly focused on expressing this huge facet of my personality. I believe that by striving to accept my past and its lingering demons and be proud of all that I have overcome without losing my joie de vivre, it enables me to harness these experiences in a positive way hopefully to create powerfully expressive work.  No matter what, when I look at my paintings I always get a healing message: I am who I am and I won’t give up.

Two pieces of advice I try to always keep in mind:

1. From abstract painter Larry Poons: “Trixie, like the old Ernest Tubbs song says, try to say good-bye the way you say hello.” 

2. From TV painter Bob Ross: “There are no mistakes, just happy accidents!”
