I trust the process that the seed of an idea will take shape. I am an investigator exploring the unique challenges of each new artwork. I respond to the ache in my belly that internalizes the injustices, the cruelty, the dangers as well as the beauty.

     The narrative leads me through a range of media that includes drawings, paintings, and three-dimensional structures. In my assemblages, I use recycled materials in response to our choking consumerism. Although I seem to eschew my classical art education, the rigor is there...even when combining the most divergent materials. The hunt for cast-offs is essential in my process as ideas percolate. Since each artwork differs structurally, I must be dexterous and use the "try this/try that" method. I may photograph the evolving work to scrutinize it before applying permanent adhesives. Pencil sketches keep me on track.
