Artist Statement 

My current body of work deals with the delicate process of remembering something of value. Process is paramount, and these pieces are created in layers like memories are layered one over the other. This journey began for me with the experience of not being able to recall my mother's face. I have spent considerable time contemplating the phenomena of memory, the unseen and sometimes the unknowable, and how that is expressed in art. Materials used such as house paint, gold, and metal leaf, and reflective mylar, in my paintings and bronze and the lost wax technique in my bust and face sculptures have symbolic meaning relating to my childhood home, or church I attended, as well as, people some of whom I can’t quite remember. I am always coming close to and then encircling something that I can never quite reach. As a result, I often create work in a series. This body of work has a spiritual, meditative, and reflective quality and it is my intention to slow time and give the viewer a moment of reflection.
