Artist Statement

My life’s journey is often reflected through my art. The sound of a child’s laughter, the connection of humans to each other, nature and music, and the ebb and flow of personal human spirit drive my work. Most of my paintings are auto biographical and range from fanciful and whimsical to deeper and introspective. I love to use color to convey mood and movement. While my background is in clay, I am a classically trained artist and have a deep rooted understanding and ability across many mediums and styles. For as long as I can remember I have created art; it is the vehicle that has driven me to exist throughout my life. Through art, I have worked through feelings of regret and despair and depicted elated unconditional love and beauty.
