About The Artist

Artist’s Statement

My art is a reflection of the varied paths along which my life has taken me. Each work touches on themes of time, memory, and emotion. I strive to make sure that each work has two fundamental characteristics: spirit and movement. By spirit, I mean that each work tells an interesting story, but not the entire story. If the work is successful, it engages the viewer—who then completes the story or invents their own as they respond in a kind of ongoing nonverbal conversation with the work. When I work on a monotype, I love the process of moving ink across the plate, pushing it forward, drawing it back, selectively removing it, mixing it such that each color embraces its neighboring colors. At the end, hopefully, the work is alive. Everything is in motion. Everything becomes possible.
