Artist’s Statement

      My love affair with the art world began with my first box of crayons and has continued with few stops for some 60 plus years.

      After having painted portraits and landscapes for many years, in mid-career, I jumped headlong into traditional printmaking with all of its disciplines. This led me to the exploration of the collagraph and the monotype mediums. The possibilities were endless.

      Every medium that I embrace offers the opportunity of discovery, which sets off the creative energy that we artists seek. The passion that drives us all is the hope that we will get better, not just older. But true creativity is elusive. It leads us on with the promise of immortality. If we are very, very good we will be remembered. That is enough.
