Artist Statement

These paintings bring my impulses, intuition and deep emotional feelings to a more conscious level. Throughout there is a constant theme– an attempt to control and balance chaotic forces in our lives. With the rhythm of color and texture and repetition of forms, I seek to turn each piece into a visual symphony.
She creates balance in each piece by a meticulous synchronization of a variety of superficially disharmonious elements: smooth, broad color fields, linear imagery, textured surfaces, oil and mixed media on panel or paper and deeply layered paint. According to Booma: “The very gesture of adding materials to the surface is very defining and a powerful movement. I feel various added elements keep the color shapes and movements in check.” The effect is that of a carefully realized harmony sustained with razor-sharp precision.
