Artist Statement Whatever work I am creating, it seems to be more about emotion and relationship than a strict representation: more subjective than objective. There's something the world gives to me as I first experience it and then as I create my art. I hope my work somehow reflects something back to the world that is worth remembering. There is a language that speaks to me visually, and it is that conversation that I strive to reveal.
