Statement of Philosophy

Each of us is here in his/her particular place and time for a specific purpose. All of us have the power to contribute to the kind of legacy we choose to leave behind. I seek the path of the artist. It is a solitary journey in which one is solely accountable for one's success or failure in its purest sense. I like that...

I love what I do! I am filled with wonder about nature; I am inspired by memories and dreams; I am excited by diversities and potentials. I use the figure and landscape in abstract images to tell stories and ask questions that reflect my personal views and visions. This is a task embedded with immeasurable responsibilities, which I undertake with cautious exuberance and considerable humility. I am committed to broadening my awareness, to developing my sensibilities, and to keeping my tools in constant good working order.

A child teaches me the art of counting: "One, one, one, one, one……..," our noses pointing firmly toward infinity.

When I enter the studio, I am that child, capable of immeasurable possibilities. Whether I am painting, making prints, drawing, or performing, I thrill at the processes of making marks, and relish the meandering each medium proffers. Memory, observation, experience, and imagination are my beacons. Grounding my feet firmly in the tangible, my path is smoothest when I am willing to fall. Along the way, discoveries and resonance abound. I traverse a solitary journey where I simply cannot become lost, where every turn promises an adventure, and each step brings me closer toward home.

Henry James said, "We work in the dark. We do what we can. We give what we have. Our doubt is our passion, and our passion is our task. The rest is the madness of art."

I count myself among the fortunate.
