This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following, submitted November 2005, is from the artist.

Artist's Statement:
I began my career in art, at four years old, in the back seat of my parents car, as they traveled the countryside.  I have been exhilarated and tormented by it ever since.  I wake up in the morning and go to bed at night thinking of what could be drawn from my imagination.  I paint and sculpt woman primarily; in their daily lives, in lives they might be afraid of or question, and in lives they wish they had.   My art explores the atmosphere revealed by our emotions; the anticipation of a first kiss, the fragrance of an infant's breath, the magic of flight at sunrise.  I am compelled to try to record the chaos as well as the calm in the eyes of those I paint and sculpt.

My goal has always remained the same; to hear them breathing and to know the passion I feel in my own soul is met by theirs.  In every single one of my paintings and sculptures my objective is to 'know them'.  To let each one reveal their own vision or message.  I am often astounded as their presence unfolds and I am met with who they are.  I then realize that who 'they' are defines me as well.  My hope is that my paintings and sculptures relate to  their audience, and that they give them the message they need for your their heart and soul.                                            

Style of work:
Primarily impressionist but also realism.

Primarily oils. Sculpture in clay and metals. I also do watercolors, silk and acrylics.
