Artist Statement

Artistic expression is my most natural means of communication with the world that surrounds me. I paint because it is my balance, my connection and my peace. I crave the dialog that arises between myself and the surface.It is often the physical process of layering, sanding, scraping, tearing and assembling that brings me the most satisfaction. I find Joy and beauty in color but its the path of my moving point, my line, that is my expression.

My paintings represent me. My personal history, my BLESSNGS, my intentions, my momentary thoughts… I am inspired and forever changed by the opportunity to see the world through the eyes of my children.

My work is an expression of my gratitude.
