I have an endless fascination for the human figure; the beauty
and grace of its form and the power of its gesture to evoke response.
I am interested in the provocation of gesture as it relates to
the paradox and contradictions of what it means to be human and
the challenge of finding visual forms to hold emotion and the
narrative of experience. There is a universal quality in the image
of the human figure, part of the thread of humanity that we recognize
and makes us feel less alone.
retired after 41 years of teaching within the Visual Arts, I
have fully embraced the life of a full time artist. Making image
is born of something inherent in who I am as well as a need
to complete a relationship with something outside of myself.
I have a degrees in Art and Sociology from the University of
California, Santa Barbara and continue to explore the my interest
in both printmaking and painting.
