When I moved to Seattle from the East Coast and continued to embark on my second career, that of becoming an artist. Essentially self taught I explored and developed my skills as I followed this childhood passion. My art had always focused on expressing aspects of the human experience…personality and relationships.
I started to expand from space and time aspects to memory and connectivity within and between individuals spurred on by my caretaking experience
for family members afflicted with Alzheimer's. I began to revisit family photos.
These images started to appear my paintings.
In 2004 I was fortunate to become Artist in Residence at the McColl Center for Visual Art in Charlotte NC. My work took a leap as I continued to flourish and explore.
My paintings represent a split second in time.
My current work explores the complexity of human personality
and form, generational relationships and human interaction. Stories are told.
