Artist’s Statement

      In creating a work of art, I strive to find the hidden messages and feelings that exist within all of us.  I want the viewer to question his/her own assumptions or experiences with the composition.  Perhaps the exchange will create a strong feeling of remembrance or something that is identifiable.

     In many of my still life paintings, I incorporate ordinary objects in the composition.  By manipulating the position of objects, the still life takes on a humanistic explanation of relationships:  some alone, some existing in groups and some ostracized.  I realize we see only the human perspective on life and most things we relate to is based on our life’s experience.
