Artist Statement I am an ardent artist. I am always creating, even in my sleep. The ideas, images, and visions awake me from my dreams. I have been creating in various media since I was a very small child. The materials beckoned that child to play, as a grown up I can’t resist it. I am driven to play, explore, and experience with my all emotions and senses. My work has revolved around the exploration of objects or obsessions of my affections. They give an insight to how I feel about love and being in love. They depict objects I want to have around me and can’t seem to live without. Many of the works are presented literally while others are a symbolic representation of my inner thoughts and desires.
