Utilizing acrylic paint and found objects, I create images of places and events which have shaped the person I am and determined the path of my life.  Beginning with a realistic image and utilizing reflection, I allow the work to evolve into color and textures. When I view my works, my mind replays events in time and evokes cherished memories. My hope for the viewer is that they will be drawn to the works, seeing images and experiencing their own emotional response to them. 

My main theme is based on the concept of journey and pilgrimage.  The circular format is divided into four quadrants whose intersection creates a cruciform, much like a labyrinth.  The large circular format has evolved into smaller, heavily textured images which continue to incorporate the circle.  Touches of gold leaf are applied to the paintings textured ridges to emphasize the spiritual aspect of the work.
