My earliest memories are of a preoccupation with careful examination of the world around me, and with putting those images on paper in the form of drawings. These two impulses are what drive me still, and are the genesis of my true adventure—finding out, and communicating through line and color what cannot be expressed in words. It seems important to me to spend time staring at the sky, to put my hands in the earth, to watch things grow. It’s important to read books. I have always been terrible at categorizing things, because the more closely I looked, the less able I was to discern where one thing started and another left off. The vocabulary of symbols I use in my work has developed as I sought to express my deep belief in the unity and connectedness of everything in the universe. I want to express my experience of this mystery as honestly and authentically as I can. I’m currently represented by the Kentucky Guild of Artists and Craftsmen Gallery in Berea, Kentucky.
