Personal Statement

My emotional response to nature inspires my art: bark on a tree, the larger landscape, stones or rock formations and prehistoric bones and carvings.

When I create organic forms, I consider structure as necessary for life. How are we formed: cell by cell, bone by bone? My art explores and engages the viewer's imagination and emotions, as well as locates myself an immigrant child, in time and space. Where am I in the universe?

With feelings-sad, angry, or exuberant and playful-and with vivid color painted on varied surfaces or layered deep within, I express in art that for which I have no words

In addition to solo and juried art shows in Illinois, Indiana and Michigan, my work can be viewed in corporate collections of Liberty Steel, St. Joseph, Michigan, Pfizer Corporation, Kalamazoo, Michigan, Irwin Union Bank and Trust, Columbus, Indiana, Braswell Fine Art, Chicago and Paris. In addition, the work is widely held in personal collection in California, Florida, Illinois, Michigan, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, and Wisconsin.
