Artist Statement -

Composition, value and form take center stage in my art. My work explores the combined impact of empty space and light in unique presentations that underscore drama and wonder. Legally blind, I see in the spaces between reality and in my art space becomes a shade, a tone, a tint, and even an invisible brush.

I am an internationally collected and award winning artist and author. Retired from the University of Colorado, I studied art from an early age as an apprentice to master oil and watercolor painters, sculptors and stone and gem carvers. My diverse skill set and love of art in its many forms eventually guided me to the creation of my signature monofilament and abstract linear paintings.
