"I believe that the combination of art and history speaks to people on many levels, one informing the other. My work articulates the working conditions and everyday activities of the workers who were the bedrock of our industrial strength. My driving interest is to capture their spirit, tenacity and hope.

"I make artwork about work. Based on historical photos and texts, I employ contemporary image making, combining translucent overlays with painting and drawing.

"My installations intend to transform spaces into living history, offering many viewpoints. The layers create a sense of animation perceived by the viewer as one moves past, and this is further transformed as natural light changes throughout the day. At night they can appear as something completely different.

"The work can be seen as a beginning or an ending, as a state of being or as the ghosts of what was. I believe this ambiguity allows people to connect with it on a deeply personal level, inviting them to become part of the work in that place in time and to reflect on their own personal stories."

"I am intrigued by color in its infinite variety. It is especially interesting to see that a color can appear to change its hue when adjacent to another color. As we humans have personalities and certain relationships can connect us to warm or cool feelings, so too can color relationships spark varied emotions. As an artist and retired psychotherapist, I notice the depth in this interplay of color and enjoy the effects within the context of shapes and light.

"I am inspired by whatever is moving in nature — a running brook, birds nesting, a wave reaching its crescendo. Children at play are especially inspiring to me, as are adults intently involved in their work or thoroughly enjoying themselves.

"In my journey to challenge my hands to develop what my eyes see, I am in a constant state of learning."

"My current art practice is focused on landscape painting, primarily using acrylic and water-based media. Through isolating fragments of previous paintings, my recent work reflects an abstracted, energetic investigation of place. The images are meant to suggest to the viewer a sense of someplace he/she may or may not have been. Created with an unbridled palette and arresting titles, my intention with this current work is to ignite memory, question, and mystery about the personal and emotional places we seek.

"In my mixed-media sculpture, I have been interested in posing visual questions regarding the nature of relationship — between natural materials, physical and emotional tension, and metaphor. Natural materials such as bones, branches, saplings, grapevine, moss, stones, and sheep's fleece, along with paper, canvas, wire, and found and altered objects comprise my three-dimensional work. The viewer is invited to address his or her own relationship to the energy, materials, symbolism and metaphors that await discovery."
