ARTIST STATEMENT


Some people are born with natural tendencies that are so keen, they cannot deny it is part of what makes them - well - them!  I was born with an incredible desire to create. It’s a part of me that just wells up and pours out. This desire and drive is especially true when I have been outside spending time in the splendor of the natural world.  I’m an outdoorsy, earthy women who loves the raw beauty of my rural New Hampshire home - so this happens often.

The natural environment provides most of my inspiration.  Many of my works are images gleaned from places I have trekked in my travels and from my community.  However, the pieces are intended to evoke an emotional experience rather than replicate the sights.  They capture moments of silence and reflection.  These snapshots of stability and calm are frozen in my work, allowing me to share them with others who long to retreat from the world’s confusion.  The process of making the something beautiful is a time of peace for me where I can hash out much of the clutter that seems to pervade the world around me.  It is a time when all the mumbo jumbo sifts away to leave something graceful and timeless.  I long for people to share in my joy for the simple.
