Artist Statement

Paintings consisting of isolated images juxtaposed within the picture plane.  Images that are broken but there is certainty revealed in the use of color, line and shape.  Figures are hollow with history and have a story yet never connected.  Detachment that could be from mental, physical, emotional abuse or simply neglect.  We live in a world today where it is easier to communicate more than ever yet we seem to have actually fewer associations amongst ourselves.  People who are struggling with “inside” and “outside” problems, life becomes surreal because life just goes on.  Lines lost and found, random shapes are explorations with significance, these are personal layers.  Fragmented layers in painting become healing.  With purpose my images propose questions that are never quite answered.  This is the story that creates life’s history.
