Artist Statement

My fascination with images that others may pass by has motivated me to investigate more closely,  the interesting shapes and play of shadows and light that I see.  I try to create thought provoking paintings, that catch the eye and one’s attention, causing the viewer to stop and look more closely.  The unusual captivates me.

She also wrote: Art to me is a personal expression of my thoughts and feelings.  I sometimes make it serious and sometimes fantastical and curious.  My enjoyment comes from making people smile or be drawn to look more closely. Mediums include charcoal, oil and pastel, usually still life, figure or closeups.
