Artist’s Statement

My life experience has included living in New England, Norway, Switzerland, Florida, and Utah. Nature and color have impacted me greatly: flaming fall foliage, blue shadows on snow, yellow fields, azure oceans, scarlet hibiscus. My artistic development has been a process of transferring nature’s colors and brilliance into an expression of ideas and feelings. After years of doing experimental work with acrylics and mixed media, I have been trying to develop skills with oils and watercolor. Whatever the medium, I want to sing with color. I find nearly all subject matter interesting. But my real goal is to share the wonder of profound awakenings of the spirit.
