Artist Statement

I wish to relate to the world I see with open eyes, an open heart and a freshness in approach. I am particularly drawn to landscape, birds and fish. I want to express the wonder of the world, its size, its light and shadow, its patterns and its hidden places. I am more concerned with portraying a simplified and spiritual essence rather than photographic realism. My collage work and printmaking are more abstract, sometimes playful. But always I am searching for the simplified heart of an image.
