Artist Statement/ Painting
diverse cultures of the world have always been my inspiration for both art and
writing. I believe it is important to know our world—the whole world— and
the people in it. By experiencing other places and customs, we put our
own life into context and gain a deeper appreciation of all lives. Travel makes
history and art, literature and architecture real. It helps us see the beauty
of everyday life everywhere.
an Art Historian, in addition to a studio painter and printmaker, I find myself
continually influenced and awed by the masterworks of the past and the way
artists interpreted their own present.
