Artist Statement

My current paintings are inspired by unspoken words.

Messages that have been created over many years, in some cases decades, then some words that are more recent.

Words by friends, by family by strangers and some by self. Statements of love, letters of thanks, letters of sadness, political views and sexual references.

In some cases, layers of words, letters, and numbers displayed in a public space for the viewer to read or ignore. Decades of marks, some acted upon, ignored and some provoking a controversial conversation.

A record of silent statement, an image, a thought that may only exist for seconds. Selected words erased, covered up or exposed.

My paintings are created in a similar way, thus leaving the viewer to create their own opinion.
