I have been creating art for over thirty years. Depending on a particular feel or appearance of my subject, I am challenged to find just the right materials and methods to accurately portray my vision. When working with a two-dimensional painting or drawing, if what I have to say is unable to be represented accurately, I move into a three-dimensional art form with the use of found objects-- referred to as assemblages.


The in-between state of working with acrylic, oil, ink, gouache, pastel and tempera is found to be with a can of spray paint. The inherent property of spray paint is spontaneity, offering complex layers of worlds within worlds. It is the only medium I have found to offer powerful accidents and transparent, dynamic surfaces.


Viewing my work, one may think that it was created out of conscious intent. However, there was an extended period of time, that this was not the case. This period was marked by a dream-like state where my art was prophetic in nature-- heralding altered perceptions, dissolving mental constructs and presenting physical occurrences, nothing less than miraculous. Needless to say, I questioned my sanity. But because the art during that period was rich in raw honesty, whether it was good, bad or ugly, I learned to trust the process. I wrote "The Shaman’s Scrapbook" in an attempt to journal the phenomenal time/space.


The body of my art is categorized by the medium used and the year in which the art was created-- first listed by the decade and then by the specific year within the decade. I am grateful to have integrated the journey with the ability to articulate and illustrate the experience. It is a pleasure to share it with those who are interested.
