Artist Statement

Art is my pulse. It informs everything I am, do, say, see. It can be seen in my work, my expression, my appearance, and my home. Art comes in many forms, reminding me of God, everywhere, eternal. The search for the divine in the humanness of everyone and everything drives and inspires me.

When I look either inside me or around me, for an idea or image to expose on film, paint or make from clay, I notice the graphic element first, which satisfies my need for order and godliness. Then I wait for the gesture or indication that makes the image or object unique and personal. I enjoy finding the irony, humor, raw emotion and tenderness in the human experience. Most exciting is when the whole process is spontaneous: Divine Inspiration expressing through me.
