ARTIST STATEMENT

After breaking both wrists in a motorcycle accident several years ago, I wasn’t sure if I’d ever be able to use my hands without intimidation, and devoid of pain. Already working in the field of graphic design, I wondered what would I do for sustainability. The blessing was having friends and family close by to support the road to recovery. It was a very humbling experience that I don’t take lightly. After a 25-plus year hiatus and inspiration from my son, I am truly THANKFUL to be painting again.

You will see a very “diverse” group of works from me. This is the way I pay homage to my rural upbringing – while adding new ways of expression in my more contemporary works. It is my way bringing what “was” into a life of what “is” and always growing. Using my early childhood days and a love for “the old and the new”, Visual Arts has afforded me that opportunity to SHARE…to SERVE in another creative capacity.

REMEMBER. DREAM. INSPIRE.
