I’ve always had a passion for creating something of substance from raw materials. Much of my art making has been an attempt to find the strength and resiliency to be found in what is sensitive and fragile. This point of view has been evidenced in my changing expressions of vulnerability and connection. Subject matter has shown an evolution over time, from work inspired by landscape, to work created from an inner landscape (mostly abstract work) and back to my current landscape inspired work. The thread that binds all my work in subject matter and structure is the appreciation of the organic nature of fragility and strength.
