ARTIST STATEMENT: My acrylic paintings all start with a question: Who am I? The answers stretch back over time and over space. They are varied and ever-changing: mother of civilization, slave, teacher, nurturer, multitasking daydreamer, life liver, pain keeper, love giver, truth seeker, and things undiscovered. When I paint the question, the answer is different every time. I paint because the more I do, the more I need to. There is an appetite growing more voracious with each creation. My only desire is that my work makes the viewer feel something.
