artist statement: 


In the studio, there is a constant awareness of the importance of being unafraid to experiment. inspiration to do so has come from studying The work of artists like Joan Mitchell, Helen Frankenthaler, Mark Rothko, Franz Kline and Cy Twombly.  teaching art to children and adults of all abilities, personalities, and special needs has also been influential.  These are just a few things that have shaped my painting and drawing. What do I want to say with my art?  something new.  Who is my art for? Everyone. It’s meant to brighten an environment. What keeps me coming back to the studio?  The challenge, and the way time flies when I’m in it.
