As an artist, the joy for me is in creating pieces that play with color, shapes, texture and the materials involved; I don't usually set out to produce artwork that "makes a statement." I love to experiment with every medium I can get my hands on and enjoy the challenge of combining traditional and non-traditional media or using materials in innovative ways. Creating a cohesive work from elements that don't ordinarily "go together" is extremely satisfying for me as an artist. I don’t always follow the rules, and quite often have "happy accidents" which lead to wonderful new discoveries. In some instances, the temporary or final location of the artwork becomes integral to the piece and how it is created, almost becoming an additional medium of the piece. I have discovered that much of life involves looking -really looking- at things to discover the many layers, levels or details involved. I take pleasure in creating artwork wherein the viewer discovers something new, uncovers something previously unseen, or notices a new detail with each viewing.
