Artist’s Statement –  A generalist by nature, I happily and humbly acknowledge the privilege of circumstance as an art professor which allows me great latitude in my creative work.  I have concurrent bodies of work in mixed media, sculptural ceramics and art quilting.  Over the years I have worked as a graphic designer, and a calligrapher, I have painted in oil and watercolor, taught myself basket weaving and silk resist dying and I enjoy historical quilt reconstruction.  Good painting intoxicates me and found objects speak to me.  I have massive collections of rocks and sticks, coins and wine corks, arrowheads and animal bones, post cards and Altoid tins.  I can’t talk without drawing and my sketchbook never leaves my side.  I am a sponge.  These all, are simultaneous strengths and weakness.  But it’s all great fun, and I have no idea how to function otherwise.
