Art has always been a fascination of mine – a passion, desire, and need. From the moment I could hold one, according to my mother, I would always draw “with a pen, never a pencil”. Though now I’m less selective in the implements I use, I still continue to fill my need to create.
My artwork focuses on the many different facets of life: sometimes mysterious, sometimes playful, sometimes dark and haunting, but always beautiful. It is through the creative process that I am able to explore the undulating changes in the human psyche and to seek out the wonder of life even when it seems like an impossible task. We are on this earth only a short time, it would be a shame not to leave something of ourselves in it.
Ray Bradbury once said, “We never sit anything out. We are cups, constantly and quietly being filled. The trick is, knowing how to tip ourselves over and let the beautiful stuff out.” I couldn’t agree more.
