When I was young, I found that drawing with a crayon became almost magical. To create images and to tell stories with my drawings was fascinating. . Today, my work continues to reveal the infinite number of human possibilities. If the viewer takes a moment to examine an uneventful, ordinary situation, it can become extraordinary by an associated memory. Art triggers a range of thoughts, and gives meaning to the mundane. The viewer observes, thinks and associates rather than accept prescribed icons. It is then that an idea is born, and creativity continues its cycle. In my personal vision, Art gives us who we are and what is important.

I work from my own photos, as well as family-inspired models. I work in thin layers of oil, blending and glazing. A sound marriage of form and content is always the challenge.
