Artist's Statement

Emotional Realism:

My work has always been inspired by nature. When creating creatures of fur, feathers, and fins, I begin with the eyes to capture the essence/soul. My training in the art of Chinese brush shows up in my landscapes, especially in my newer painted gourds.

No matter what medium I’m working in, my process involves the ‘magic’ of lines that define shapes and details. This is especially apparent in my pen & ink drawings and pyrographic (wood-burned) works as I construct the three-dimensionality that is a defining characteristic of my artistry.

Since September 2020 I have had to stop burning due to a recently diagnosed lung condition, however, not to be thwarted, I am finding new ways to continue my gourd art; painting.
