Statement

2016

Creative process is my way of expressing what is deep inside.

I’ve written and worked for labor rights, women’s rights, children’s rights and my life’s work and deep convictions influence my art.

I find working with paint, shapes, color and figures in nature are most compelling to me.

I do not exclude any medium, but find painting and photographs, creating visual work, is best for expressing what I feel and want to articulate.

Photography is a medium I use while traveling and hiking and I find repetitive shapes and scenes inspire me and I use both life and photos to create my paintings.

Trees, the natural environment, inform my intuitive process while creating and many times they will appear in my abstract work, and I’ve begun incorporating multimedia materials in my work to create more texture and historical reference.
