Artist Statement

“ The artist’s language is the memory from sight. Art is made from dreams, and visions, and things not known, and least of all from things that can be said. It comes from the inside of who you are when you face yourself. It is the inner declaration of purpose; it is a factor which determines artistic identity.” David Smith 1959

My personal approach to making art is best summed up in the paragraph above; I learn and experience visually and, in turn, respond intuitively. The language comes from visions that cannot be described or explained, it is a reflection of what I see, feel, admire, imagine and remember. My purpose has always been to hold on to these experiences and capture the visions that sift through.
