Artist StatementAlthough I have worked with diverse materials in order to bring my ideas to fruition, the dance of color, form, and texture has been my constant companion. No matter the media used, I live my life in the service of art, even when I am not actively creating works. It is an essential endeavor for me; because, through the creation of art, I look for the evidence of connection between us all. Equally important, the work allows me to present an opportunity for the viewer to connect to something within themselves. I can think of no other path I’d rather take.
