About The Artist

Artist Statement

Doing art is the way I have always integrated experiences; bringing the outside to the inside, the inside to the outside, the invisible to the visible.  It is a powerful vehicle for me and I love working on that ambiguous edge.  My drawings lean towards the representational, my paintings pushing into more numinous realms, the sculptural pieces spanning both. I am interested in mark-making and the long history of humans developing symbols and notations to communicate and create narratives. Our essential energy, our own gestures and mark-making, is carried by our pencils and our brushes to our paintings as well as to our language, our thinking, our movement and expression. In my work I play between the representational and the abstracted, the intentional and explorative.  I am often  groping in the dark but love the process; sometimes a struggle, sometimes a dance.  I am also exploring themes of routes and lines;  how we are connected through time and space by visible and invisible strands of communication lines, blood lines, shipping lines, boundaries, mark-making, harmonies. . .  the variety of trails that make up the constellations of our lives. The practice of art making is a constant process of renewal and discovery and the surprises on the canvas can sustain us as artists.



I feel fortunate to have found art making very early in my life. My very first jobs were doing window displays and working as an art therapist for Community Mental Health. I have taught art and art history most of my career and have always felt very lucky to be able to live a creative life.  My work is in private and corporate collections in the Bay Area and the Midwest.
