Vibrant colors, the dramatic contrast of light and dark entice me visually, emotionally, and stimulate my imagination. In addition, I feel a strong connection with objects and places that hold the aura of age, of history. These feelings for color and aura inspire me to share those feelings through my art. Still lifes allow me to share my memories and tell a story through the progression of a series of works. Art, to me, is the love and expression of color, form, shape, and the opportunity to share that will others.
