I grew up extremely shy and felt ill-equipped to use my voice to express whatever was happening within and around me. I was a silent bystander. Art became an outlet but on an unconscious level. I did not realize its hold on me until later in life when I came to realize that art fulfilled an intrinsic need. Creating art became a means of connecting me to my true self. Early on it was a private affair, one I did not want to share with anyone. Luckily my life experiences have helped me overcome my shyness. I now have the courage to speak up, reveal my soul, share and connect my work with the universe.
The imagery in my work portrays a continuous dialogue with my psyche and the nuances of everyday experiences.
My work can also be seen at the following galleries: Red Chair Gallery, 103 NW Oregon Ave., Bend, OR, Angi D Wildt Gallery, 106 10th St., Astoria, OR
