STATEMENT

 

For me, art is expression of the artist's life and evolution. It is most interesting when the art reflects the artist's vision, philosophy and discoveries over time.

I am a searcher. I like to look into the surface of what I see and to consider it from different perspectives, attempting to discover something new, or something beyond, in the process.

Working in series, I want to see motion or an evolution of my subject; to depict it in different ways or see it transform.

The process of making of art is an internal conversation and process of discovery. When I feel the piece is finished, I want the viewer to enter a journey of discovery of one's own – to a place, a meditation or feeling – or to see the world through my eyes.

My connection with the ocean, the horizon and sky is readily apparent in my work: Diving below the surface; gazing beyond the horizon and up into space; delving into the dark and toward the light compose much of my visual lexicon. In Taos, the sky is my ocean and the clouds my waves.
