The subject of my art is important and personal to me.  I am not trying to tell a story but rather want to learn more, for there is more than one side to everything.   I want to find meaning in my surroundings so I can gain control in its chaos.  I recreate the appearance of things to capture the experience and to share it.   My arranging of subjects is to get beyond the surface and to explore the human psyche in relations among people and within themselves.
