Artist Statement
I have always been drawn to the mystical imagery created by light and the connection between past and present. One of my earliest memories is of the pattern the sunlight made on the bed of the baby carriage as my mother wheeled me on a summer day. Beauty is in the momentary, in the fleeting, in the reflection of an ordinary situation, made extraordinary by being frozen in time…made extraordinary by the capture of attention and concentration – the light on a leaf, a dramatic cloud formation, and the extraordinary grace of an angled shadow on a floor. All this can be combined poetically through use of value, line, texture, color.
