Artist Statement

When I was young I spent countless hours in nature arranging found materials such as grass, stones, flowers, and branches into sculptures. Sometimes I would make whoever I could wrangle to come view my creations. It took many years to realize I was making art. My personal process of creation has remained much the same over time. I create art out of an urge to express and give solace to my innermost thoughts and feelings. My newest paintings are a study in my love of color and texture. I hope to bring beauty and joy into the world through my art.
