Artist Statement

I see artist "creations" as copies or rearrangements of what God has created. I started watercolor in 2004 to portray my grandchildren. Once paints were in hand, however, I wanted to paint everything—from mushrooms to motorcycles. My paintings are usually realistic, although I have done abstract painting and stylized murals. I also work with clay, particularly porcelain. I let the porcelain speak its own beauty, rarely glazing a piece, and I single fire my work in an electric filn. I do only hand building because this gives me the greatest sense of creating, recalling that God "formed man from the dust of the ground and breathed into him the breath of life." I want life to breathe into and out from my work.
