 Artist Statement

Through the years I have challenged myself to explore many ways of producing my art and to discover more about the psychology in the work itself.  My art develops from concepts, improvisation, and events, that use subjects such as, memories, stories, and Native American culture  that have all  become more prominent in the work.

 

  My art works are reflective of a rediscovery through evaluation of ones self.  In order to redefine your existence, peel back ones childhood, identity, and personal experiences, the truth that lies just beneath the surface will emerge.  Andy Goldsworthy said “Something just under the surface directly affects the outside surface.”  In my quest for personal answers in my art this is exactly what I found.  All of life’s experiences, remembered and repressed, have begun to resurface and it is all just under that delicate surface, the surface of truth and ownership.
