I have been alternately surprised, gratified and puzzled by our human ability to both create and then solve our own struggles. It is as if Galileo's quote implied that all we need is to listen to ourselves, our real selves, to grow, thrive and prosper. It seems simple, yet the compelling demands of daily life work against our ability to listen and know ourselves.
My paintings attempt to give the viewer a small space in which to focus totally on themselves and their own unique responses to the piece. The images are layered, complex and non-representational. Each is intended to be a tangible and unique bit of reality for which the viewer will provide meaning.
All paintings, collages and drawings are constructed and framed by the artist using acid-free, archival materials and methods.
