ARTIST STATEMENT: I love being a part of the creative process. I love the color – the energy – the texture of paint and paper – the excitement of watching new forms unfolding before me – the challenge of resolving new problems each painting presents – and the knowledge that infinite numbers of visual experiences and new challenges will always await me.
