Stepping Stones #1 - 2. Mix Media Collage on Paper. 11 1/2 x 7 1/2. 2004

“I thought that your work had the right balance of form/no form to engage the imagination. They looked fluid, like they had movement.” – Dr. Trent Tucker

“ My initial feeling viewing your art is breathtaking art with dynamic colors. Since your art are of abstract expressionist elements, I can interpret the subject in context of personal experience or can reconsider the subject of the canvas from an alternate visual perspective than usual similar to learning a language with alternate ways to express a concept; visual elements on your canvas can have a power like an echo that moves on textural planes color fields, or be resonant and penetrating to view because they are relative and interdependent.” – Renee Winfield, Graphic Designer

Artist Statement
2006-12-30
Art is an important expression of life that documents the thoughts, experiences, and traditions of an individual. Art is the power to create a specific piece using various materials hightened by tone, volume, depth, and definition. Art is the tool for healing the mind, body and spirit. Art is the colors that glow upon the eyes of both the artist and the viewer. Art is the beauty of the human eye.

The artist frequently is engaged in a dual relationship: one with the materials used for creation; the other with the perceived audience. Allowing the audience to gather its own perspective and to find its own story.

I believe it is truly a blessing to be an artist.

For Art comes natural to me.
