Artist's statement

Full Artist's statement

I create mixed media paintings by assembling panels and fragments of carved, painted, and inked wood to produce richly textured artworks that reflect my strong respect for nature. I work with wood because it has a warmth and history that it carries with it, and because of its textural and tactile energy. The repetition in my process is an expressive act for me, expressive of feelings I have about the constancy of natural cycles and the joy and comfort I find in them.
