Artist Statement

Through metaphoric suggestion related to human emotion and energies my works attempt to connect on several levels.  My passions are nature and justice.   Teaching art for 30 years connected me to the process and now I seek to connect with others with various subject matter and mediums.  Early in my life I discovered that I could be transported from these fears by creating.Like most people, I fear insignificance, mortality, and boredom. 

Exhibition Narrative

 As I assess this body of work I realize  subjects was not totally achieved.  But taking a vacation from controversial  me and I felt I had calmed my anxieties on issues I had no control and only reaction.  Their strength and grace attracted  visual vehicles.  Focusing on the beautiful impartiality of the animal world I discovered newI attempted to separate my opinionated passions from my studio endeavors.  although human emotion, and energy and mystery are present.  The escape they provide was satisfying my passions were scapegoated through innocent mammals.
