"My life experiences are explored and discovered through art. When working, I
do not have a finished piece in mind, but an interest in seeing where the
process of making will lead. I follow each impulse to the next, allowing the
investigation to unravel and reveal itself. When I'm lucky -when I trust the
processes- I experience a flow and receive what feels like a gift. Although
my work is personal, I believe it taps into the universal, and I am looking
to connect with others and myself more deeply. These are words I associate
with my work: intuitive, awake, unstuffed, humorous, rhythmic, disturbing,
engrossing, sexual, figurative, colorful, unique and complex. It is my
hope that you will enjoy experiencing the work as much as I enjoy making it."
