Artist’s Statement

As a designer, I work for a client to produce an original solution to specific challenges, often collaborating with a committee or community, working within budget and practical limitations. This includes commercial assignments and public art commissions.

As an artist, I work for myself. I paint in acrylics, with love of color, illusion-making, and variety dominating my choices, often with collage and mixed media. I delight in variety by combining a range of styles and subjects, recycling previous work, and assembling multiple canvases. I regard these combinations as depictions of a diverse, complex world. They are metaphors for bridging differences and extending boundaries, a celebration of inclusion.
