I’ve been motivated to express myself and evolve and grow as an artist since my childhood…relaxing with pencil and paper, listening to others’ perspectives and observing, exploring and growing from self doubt to confidence. I love the impact of the elements of design, the student and viewer process moving from uncertainty to recognition and joy, the revelations in the texture of clay, the way paint makes its own statements, and the triumph of hand and mind working together!
I’m comfortable moving from the contrast between working with clay to the various mediums in paint then on to working with pencil, partly because of the varying textures and unique challenges each presents and partly because each energizes me as an artist with its unique opportunities for expression.
Although some of my work has been compared to Picasso I try not to confine myself to a single fixed style. I like choosing different mediums and materials to match subject matter or feelings which like as not may result in a realistic, modern or even abstract presentation. The work itself is my primary delight.
