Artist Statement:
My art is my language of communicating my thoughts and emotions. It is what I can do and express in the most clear way I know. I make art for the same reason birds fly, it is automatic and just seems like a natural thing to do. When I paint from a photograph, it is like flying into a strong wind, it is work but I am thrilled if I capture what I like in...

Why Did You Become An Artist That is where my interests and talent are.
 
Your Personal Biography California Collage of Arts and Crafts,BFA,MFA in Sculpture. Have done welded and painted metal sculptures,
worked in clay, both hand built and slip cast, got into painting- oil sticks,oil paint, gouache,acrylics, did monoprints and etchings for a while. When I was in art school I mainly did abstract imagery but turned to animal imagery with clay and then with paintings. I mainly do cats and dog imagery now, ducks and other little fun critters when an image excites me enough. More recently I have been creating assemblages using found stones and recycled materials to create what I call wall jewelry. I am inspired by shape and textures and visual movement and interest created by where and how you join different objects. The most work being the choice and placement of them.
