Artist's Statement

My work celebrates connection: with our emotions, our history, or a deep sense of place.
My paintings are thresholds, designed to create a personal experience for each viewer and a space to breathe in our busy lives.
The visual energy and complexity in my work springs forth from the alchemy of color, texture, movement and depth.

Creating a piece that touches someone and elevates their environment is a gift.
