Statement

I am an artist working to create art that starts a conversation. Primarily interested in making work that exists in all three dimensions, I weave a story to connect it to intangible signifiers in the viewer’s existence. My passion for creating began in childhood growing up in Southwest Detroit. With limited art resources, in my early work I improvised using objects found in my neighborhood.  Religious andethnic themes grow naturally from that past environment.  I’ve been an exhibiting artist since 2001. After a career working as an occupational therapist I continue to emerge as an artist. Working with intuitive and outsider artists during my career in mental health provided a creative surge. Today, my sculptural clay and mixed media works grow from personal insights linked to broader issues.
