Artist Statement

My work flows from a primitive heart, like the cavemen who first drew on the cave walls at Altamira or Lasceaux. I am that cave dweller - struggling to define my world - drawing on my formal training to push beyond what is visible into a realm of abstraction. The work has always been, for me, to challenge what I think I know and reach toward what is unknowable.  Through that imaginary wall lies my world.
