In my craft and painting work, I reflect on my life and experiences. Every day we are bombarded with so much energy and chaos and never really realizing those particular moments may have an impact on me and change my life. One moment can change your destiny or your outlook. These are forces we do not have any control of and lots of times we question why. I try to isolate these moments and reflect, trying to make reason and build on them so that I can grow to be a better person. Life is a building process, layer upon layer. In my art making, I engage in a similar building process. Manipulating mediums together, one affecting the other, until I feel the work is complete. My reflections through art making are created in glass, fiber, clay and paint. I look as I drive to work each morning, or look into the woods in my backyard or see the repetition of line in a newly plowed field. Capturing these moments through nature as my subject not knowing if these moments will change my life.
