most recent creations of stained glass and painted sculptures
combine strong graphic design, intricate glass work and figurative
sculpture. I overlay beautiful stained glass on clay or resin
sculptures which adds sparkling color to these three dimensional
images. These works are narrative interpretations or define
relationships or events that remain foremost in my thoughts. My goal
is to peak the viewer's senses with this innovative and dramatic
almost always work figuratively. In my latest two-dimensional oil
paintings I am trying to capture the ethereal quality of water and
sun and how we are effected by these atmospheric influences.
The psychology of my work charts the richness and complexities of
human relationships and traditions. The stories behind each piece
illustrate some of our most common emotions.... Friendship, joy,
togetherness, love and unity. I strive to impart the feeling
surrounding every day human connectedness, and the emotions we take
for granted as we live, love and share together. The underlying
strength of the human condition fascinates me. I am drawn by the
energy generated from the deep bonds between us. By creating these
visual experiences, I hope to impart the viewer with a feeling of
peace and serenity.
