Artist’s Statement: I am very fortunate. I have always been in the arts.
Learning the notes on the piano from my grandmother who was a piano teacher.
Listening to classical music that my brother brought before me.
Playing instruments. Becoming a photographer. Practicing counseling and social work for 42 years, which I see as another artistic process.
Becoming a painter. I create every day. I start with compassionate observation.
I always have a camera with me. For me, great things happen where arts merge.
I use paint, cameras and digital technologies. I aim for reciprocity between myself and my media. I love to be surprised in the act of creation.
My artworks are all a result of these processes.
