About The Artist

Artist Statement

My paintings are a composite of recollections and evolving observations of the familiar. The subjects chosen allow me to revisit and focus on sacred objects and locations which hold a special place in my heart. Connected by my personal history and observations, the subjects also share a common presence of being anytime, anywhere.

The paintings are watercolor, gouache, monotype paper, and thread.
