Artist Statement:

My art work is an extension of how I perceive the images that surround me. These images include the beauty of nature, my dreams, emotional state of mind and my somewhat bizarre sense of humor. I work in many different types of media, including found objects, all paints and drawing materials, clay as well as collage.

Expressing ourselves visually is instinctive, first scribbling, then drawing, communicating before we learn to print or write. In all the years that i have been an instructor I have not known of a child who did not have the curiosity to draw paint or sculpt. Learning any subject should be an exciting and interesting process.
