about the artist : statement

I work concurrently on a range of ideas in a variety of media. I grew up in a military family, as part of an invisible rootless tribe. The way I work reflects my nature and my nurture. My work and my life are paths crossing others, connecting and diverging, fashioning patterns of people and choices and ideas and feelings. Itís all in the mix.

Itís difficult to categorize my work as a whole. I usually work through ideas in series of related pieces, yet some stand alone. Sometimes ideas are set aside, only to be picked up years later.

I choose materials to express my thoughts, and the materials in turn suggest more ideas. My art lives not just in the final product, but in its making, and in its relation to other work.

I enjoy the freedom to explore where my ideas lead. I want to share the wonder I find. Itís not my intention to lead you to specific interpretations or conclusions. Words stand in the way of the direct experience of visual art. Youíre part of the process now.

Relax and enjoy.
