"Tell me, what do you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?" - Mary Oliver

Apertures III - Acrylic on canvas 20 x 20 in.

"When creating art, I am experimenting with thoughts and feelings that are transformed using whatever materials are at hand. I do not plan my work which results in a spontaneous expression of something coming from a deeper place in me than my head. I am surprised at what happens on the paper or canvas.

An abstract way of looking at the inner self is a spiritual experience. It takes me out of time and space and into a world of discovery. Color and shape and line are the bones of this work in which I can get lost. Rules are no longer a concern and the end is fresh and spontaneous.

My hope is that when others view my work, they will find a story of their own, something that is meaningful to them or moves them in some way. If this happens, we have communicated on a personal level."
