Artist Statement

Stream of consciousness and a rich store of personal memories are the starting place for my prints and drawings. My interest in energy and power, in the widest sense, provide a central theme through which I make art about basic life events- from the mundane to the seminal. I use an array of graphic images; birds, houses, boxes, powerlines, tubes and swimmers to tell my visual stories. These images act as a bridge for me to explore intangible ideas and subconscious thoughts about the world. My process is multidisciplinary and includes photography, computer, Xeroxing, drawing, painting, book arts, plaster work, and printmaking. The work is intentionally messy and tidy, clear and ephemeral, familiar and strange; perhaps reflecting a passion for continual exploration and my human need to create.
