“ My paintings always start from a misstep , a spilled paint can, a dirty drop cloth, a juncture of lines that are formed from a fold . I take that shape, figure, an emotional reaction, or the combination and continue from that “happening” onward to discovering the finality of the piece.” MacNamara
All of my work is driven by research and studies of materials and experimenting to find that combination that talks and elicits curiosity.
Research in various mediums allow me to "see" in multiple ways. The 2D work influences the 3D , the 3D impacts the 2D. Creating visions of finding that perfect visual poem.

Painter, sculpter, inventor and teacher
I have been an artist for over 10 years, 25 if your counting my decorative artist business.
I am driven by giving a voice visually to years of memories lying beneath the skin. How can I communicate that in an art form? I have researched ceramics, concrete, aluminum, paints and now paper to allow me to "see" in multiple ways. The 2D work influences the 3D , the 3D impacts the 2D. Creating visions of finding that perfect visual poem to elicit curiosity.
