Art has been a part of my life since early childhood, as I watched my mother paint and exhibit her work. Painting is a great joy as well as a driving force. For me, being an artist requires painting nearly every day, with discipline, abandon, spontaneity and precision.  I enjoy using vivid colors and painting subjects with which I feel a personal affinity. My most recent work is based on the often-overlooked power lines, cables and wires that connect us. The tangled webs of wire, the ways in which they divide space, the mystery of the many gadgets that accompany them, and the structures on which they hang or which they support are intriguing and fascinating.
