Artist Statement (2023)

My life is moving through paint, first in black and white and now, in vivid color.  Images are reflections of my inner and outer being.  They are coming and going through joy and tears, as a bird or dancer takes flight through the landscape in my mind.

Images enter and exit dreamlike places that evoke metaphors of thoughts and dreams.  Colorful spaces frame backdrops for figures and animals that float or fly through the mysterious and the unknown.  Views within color blocks, of wondrous creatures and dancers in the art of flight: they are thoughts and visions, both real and imagined.  My art, my life from one piece to the next, is a journey through the passage of time.
