Artist statement

My paintings are visual journeys in my quest seeking answers to questions about life’s mysterious connections. In the process I hope to discover truths about life, death, love and spirit. In my current mixed media works I collage found papers and images that I feel compelled to incorporate into my art, giving the work visual depth and sense of relationship to the past. Layering paper and images is like layering thoughts and emotions. Bits and pieces float in and out of my consciousness until one central vision prevails. Along the way I discover something new and a deeper understanding of myself.
