Exploration and manipulation are my favorite words when I am in my studio. I work through process exploring a variety of mediums and appreciate that each medium has unique qualities for the development of ideas. The work develops as I incorporate the marks, shapes, textures and layers that are the foundation of my work. These elements come together to express my ideas, concerns and stories.
All living things leave physical evidence of their existence. This evidence is generated by the activities each performs which can range from the monumental to the minute. My work is my evidence. It represents my passion for art and my time in the studio. My desire is that this “evidence” be interpreted and enjoyed thus creating an opportunity for interaction and connection.
