About my work
      A layered history of remembrance. A bridge between then and now. A methodology to authenticate belief. Tuning perceptions to desire’s needs, all the while listening and taking notes. A construct molded by the passage of time and the words to name it.
   The paintings are inspired by photographic images of nature. Their development mirrors the intellectual, emotional, and spiritual exchanges within experiences altered by the passage of time. The titles are assembled from journal notes taken while painting and function as counterpart to the work.

    I'm a past recipient of an Arizona Commission on the Arts (ACA) Project Grant, and curated an exhibition for the ACA 2000-2002 Traveling Exhibition Program. The ACA exhibition, Language/Image/Object, explored the power and magic of language on visual expression. My work has been featured in New American Paintings and Phoenix Home & Garden Magazine. My work has been reviewed by Art News, Art & Antiques, Dialogue, and New Art Examiner magazines, as well as the Chicago Tribune, the Chicago Sun-Times, and the Chicago Reader newspapers.
