Artist Statement
Do energies have a will of their own and how they behave when not encountering objects are the questions that capture my imagination and guide many of my drawings.  These independent drawings are later incorporated as syllabi, words and phrases in my color work to reveal worlds of beauty, peace and innocence.  The main characters in these worlds are teenage girls.  In a timeless existence they busy themselves in physical tasks that are beyond our limited understanding but seem to involve the flow of energies of some kind.  Their skills are more spiritual than practical.  They are particular about their posture, movement and the way they dress, although they are not trying to impress each other or anyone else.
