Statement from the Artist
My work is concerned with relationships. There are the actual and the implied relationships in the arrangements of form, object, and color. I enjoy working with contrasts; a smooth surface against rough, patterns next to solids, soft edges as well as sharp. These effects are expressed in various media. Oil, collage, pastel, various forms of printmaking, and often a combination of these plus random objects are used. The complexity of creating these relationships is a constant challenge and pleasure.
