    Artist Statement

    Memories fade- and the desire to preserve them into objects/tangible items is what drives me to create. I create something of myself while uncovering parts of myself- and amongst the pieces find other parts; hidden secret parts, that provoke further discovery through creating. I am a mixed media artist and I am continually venturing further into new creative possibilities whether it be printmaking, collage, watercolor, wax- I am interested in anything that helps make my ideas become tangible works of art. Life and all its emotions trickle through my work leaving parts of my soul exposed for another to find themselves in relationship to it. Art helps me to realize and resolve emotions in my personal world as well as explore conflict in the larger world and my various perceptions and reactions to it.
