             Artist Statement
 
I am a mixed media artist working with acrylic paints and other elements.  I seek to paint my abstract impressions of nature by utilizing color, light, shadow and shape, and I strive for intuitive, spontaneous expression.   I enjoy participating in and being an advocate for the arts in my area, believing strongly that the arts are community assets that should be accessible to all.
