Artist's Statement

My paintings come from the need to make a mark, like drawing in the dirt, or like scratches made on cave walls, a primal drive to create something out of emotions, to make the spirit visible. Cave drawings, rock art, marks made in the ground, old sidewalks, floors and walls that reflect the history of time, these all inspire me. I work from my dreams, surroundings and family life, or just from the pleasure of using color, line and form. The response that you as the viewer makes to any of these artworks expresses your connection to them. Creation is all around.

About the Artist

I have been painting since my early years. I grew up in South Arkansas and I now spend my time between there and Northwest Arkansas, where I live within the boundaries of the Buffalo River National Park in the Ozark Mountains. The beauty of the area often results in landscapes of waterfalls and streams. I received my Master of Fine Arts from the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore, where I studied with Grace Hartigan.
