ARTIST STATEMENT:

I have found passion in discovering artistry and beauty in raw materials within reach.  It’s not only oil paint bought in an art supply store that can create the strokes of a painting.  I have found images emerge in the stain of wine and coffee, or the grit and texture of concrete.  I see the potential that a rusted piece of metal or an old shower door can offer as a new canvas.  The added elements of rope, and discarded materials can be used to improve a work of art.  I use these found objects and materials as my media to create a truly organic nature to my work.  Keeping my mind and eye open to the ability of an object or substance to be used to construct and deconstruct imagery has helped me to maintain a primitive element to my art that is unique and connected to my surroundings.

EDUCATION:

Mostly a self-taught artist who has taken both group and private classes with a wide variety of artists.
