Artist Statement “Art is a tool for expressing our hearts and heads.  The “idea” or “message” is the real gem.  Finding a medium that does justice to our idea is a struggle.  Technique and skills, availability, time constraints, cost, the public ear and eye for what we try to share, health and energy all seem to add to that effort.  Learning our lessons from life and finding the gem in the everyday is what life is about.  Wisdom is needed to recognize the gem, give it a home in us and know when it’s enough a part of us to share and be authentic. At times I find what I see on my canvas has never been a conscious thought to me but I recognize it as a part of me.  Without art I stand mute.”
