Artist Statement

                 

         My images are symbolic, derived from personal experience, imagination and dreams. The rough, imperfect and scarred surfaces of my mixed- media monotypes metaphorically reveal the fragility of both the earth and all the life on it. These works of art express my belief that only when we are able to live in a harmonious relationship with all living creatures can we truly fulfill our potential as human beings and value the paradise we have been given.
