Art is, to me, about the letting out of what is inside. It is the inner voice seeking to be heard; the disclosure of one's inner world. Music, dance, architecture, sculpture, painting, in fact all creative endeavors exemplify this expression.
My pieces begin with color and form and unfold into unique creations. At times a dream affects the outcome of my efforts. Other times I am motivated by a value or goal I have, or a memory. Sometimes my concerns for the future appear in my pieces. The process of painting is sometimes a meditation for me.
I think of myself as an honest, compassionate, balanced person who is mindful of our environment. I believe in the interconnectedness and unity of the world. In my life I practice theses values, guided by determination and sprinkled with humor.
I enjoy the pure pleasure of painting, collaging and constructing. I love the colors and textures offered by the mediums. My pieces are primarily abstract impressionistic. I employ symbols and forms in my art and strive to accomplish the challenges of balancing them. Sometimes there are impressions of nature or a fantastic reality appears. It is my hope that my work will elicit an emotional response on the part of the viewer and satisfy the communication of the art.
