Artist Statement

Art is a journey that leads to the discovery of ideas, processes, memories and self.

It is exhilarating to discover one's voice and to have others understand and relate to the work, even though they have traveled a different path.

​As an artists who has created original  work for over forty years, I am always excited to be working with new processes and ideas.  One never knows where the path will lead or what the outcome will be. This journey is why creating works of art are  rewarding for me.

The forces of nature and the feeling one experiences when alone in nature is expressed through the colors and lines which are evident in the paintings,  drawings and glasswork. I am more comfortable in nature than anywhere else.

The work in glass came from a fascination with the process and understanding the chemistry and physics used to create glass work.  Seeing the same subject represented two dimensionally and three dimensionally is something that can be challenging.

As an artist one is never bored.  Even with failures one learns something new and another door is opened.
