Artist Statement 

The making of art is what aids me in recalling forgotten moments of my past.  These scintillas of time are often minor occurrences or interactions with people or nature, but I see them as pivotal segments in an elaborate sequence of events, leading to the present.  It is my hope that the viewer will sense, from that motivation which inclines me to paint,  an obligation to illuminate those darkened puzzle pieces of his or her own personal history.
