Artist Statement

My work is a hinge between artist and audience. Pieces are invitations that provide permission to be involved. One enters the work through the visual temptation of color, visual tricks and, at time, words and symbols. The act of creation is a balancing act between autonomy and connectedness. I like to connect. I enjoy the idea that the work is never actually completed but continually reinterpreted and refreshed through those who encounter it.

My drawing are visual games that I play with myself. They are not planned in any manner but emerge from the page as each line is added. The rules are made up as I go along.
