ARTIST STATEMENT: I hope that the artwork which I have chosen to display will speak for me. This is only a small portion of what I can do, but my experience has been that anything I have created, whether it be jewelry, art or writing, which I've sent, shown, read or given to both friends & strangers was so positively received. Numerous people have always encouraged me to get my work and my son's work...out there. In fact, at times enough people have said to me that it is a shame that my hard work is not being shown. I wish I had included some of my assemblages, but I made the selections of my work for the most part by what images came up in my file. We all know that whether or not we are artists in this present time, we all have so very many photos.
