​ARTIST STATEMENT

I have always been fascinated with old photographs...so candid in our attempt to document the everyday and how easily these images can become icons. My work is a multi-layered evolution of vivid color, playful shapes, textural fragments, and long forgotten photographic images of nonchalant figures. Each layer is a moment, a new thought, sometimes revealing of what came before and at other times hidden as the momentum continues. I like to tap into the viewer's sense of self by unveiling a connectedness to a moment. While identity remains anonymous, a sensitivity to time and space takes over. As I paint in the round, I offer no beginning or ends. Simply taking you on a journey by offering snapshots of information buried along the way. Savannah, GA has been my home for the past thirty years and I have exhibited regionally, as well as nationally.
