Statement

ARTIST STATEMENT

I strive to express the relationship between humanity and nature, humanity and earth, and humanity and the universe through my art.  Recent studies show scientific proof that living as intellectual humans in the universe are more rare and unique than we’ve imagined.  I contemplate the meaning of human existence and its connection to the universe, as well as exploring the origin of our planet and its future in the universe.


I use images and symbols found in space and the ocean.  My frequent use of round and circular objects reflects the cycle of life and their common occurrence in the universe.  The work on canvas is based in oil paint.  Mixed medium are used in subsequent layers to accentuate each layer, creating with each stratum a link to the past, present and future.  The work on paper is on the other hand, painted without layers using Japanese pigment, Sumi ink (traditional Japanese writing ink), and pencils.  I drop ink and paint very carefully, to create and express a beauty of life with accidents and chances.

The varied colors, fine lines, and organic shapes in my art reflect my sensibilities and emotions. These feelings are often uncertain and intimidated by the challenges the future may bring, but ultimately inspired and hopeful.
