Personal Statement

I am driven to understand, to make sense of, the impact of primary human emotions on life decisions. What inspires 
me is our capacity to not only feel compassion, but also to withstand adversity and to respond to life’s challenges. 
What carries any person from darkness to light? I use Art to 
respond to this: for illuminating, investigating, analyzing, and exploring our external and internal personal dynamics. Each painting starts as a monologue, maturing into a 
conversation. These “conversation” paintings work as fantasies do, aspiring toward joyful 
imagery but often exposing anxiety and contradiction.
