Artist's Statement

In my most recent work, I'm exploring the night sky and the constellations that have watched us for thousands of years. I incorporate mythology into some of my paintings ... updating old stories and creating a few of my own. I'm also having fun personifying the moon -- using the faces of family and friends to get just the right expressions. 

I've always been drawn to figures and have been drawing faces for as long as I can remember. Creating artwork that blends the two: story and the figurative fuels my imagination and makes me think of the many layers: our stories, on top of older stories, on top of the story of the universe ... it's endless! 

My inspiration is drawn from Psalm 19, "The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands ..." I believe the "keeper of the stars" is the ultimate artist and I'm thankful for the ideas He gives and the opportunity to create!

I enjoy the symbolism and the challenge of turning the old into the new. And because I look for inspiration in the faces I see, who knows? You may recognize yourself in a painting of Orion the Hunter or Cassiopeia someday!  

"Soli Deo Gloria!"
