Artist Statement

I paint what I know. Sometimes it involves communicating perceptions, relationships, and feelings too difficult for me to put into words. I'm inspired by depth, continuity, love, faith, and multi-generational connections, the most meaningful things we have, and sometimes what we lose. There is a certain forgiveness of myself I must practice each time I paint. Raising a family with six children at home and caring for a mentally ill parent means that painting sessions are reduced to blocks of time lasting an hour or less. Painting in this manner reflects my current life circumstances in hurried brushstrokes and imperfections that reveal my most authentic voice.
