|The creation and exploration of art has been a life long love -- the process of painting colors on canvas, drawing on paper,
and cutting on wood and printing. When I look at my work I remember my making of it. The craft allows for the meditation and
dictation of feelings, stories, and ideas. Words require a beginning and end -- structure and logic. Art remains open to
mystery and contradictions.
The human body provides inspiration for most of my work. It is beautiful -- in the image of God. But, we also find it
grotesque -- blood, guts, fluids, etc. It’s inner-workings -- giving us nothing-less than life -- are extraordinary, but it’s
failure creates great pain and fear.
Our bodies also hold a physical history as individuals -- with scars, aches, appearances, movement. A vessel for our selves.
