Personal Responses

A twentieth century artist evolving into the twenty-first century, I am engaged by possibilities with actual, virtual, imagined, and invented spaces. My twentieth century journey through drawing and painting has connected with digital imaging and installation.

I use varied media for my contemporary expressions. Graphite, oil, watercolor, mixed media, pixels, recycled art magazines, and flea market found 12" dolls are among my materials at hand. In a connection of ideas and experiences I explore the extent to which images come from that elusive, shifting thing called reality.

As imagination, invention, storytelling, and improvising come into play, each work gains a layered, complex visual history of active surfaces. This suggests that many things are happening simultaneously, giving the viewer an opportunity to investigate personal responses.
