My art has always been informed by the textures, hues and sensations of the world that

surrounds me. This showing of new oil paintings and mixed-media pieces

continues a thread of resemblance to earlier work, while also exploring

new techniques and themes.

This work was born from the mounting pressure I feel from changes in my

communities. The feeling of compression and the stresses and strains that come with change.

Like stepping stones bridging one creek bank with the other, this

work deliberates on, and acknowledges the uneasy feeling of uncertainty, with sometimes

humorous and obtuse references.
