Artist Statement

I grew up watching my grandmother create little ephemeral masterpieces on our kitchen table. With her beautiful, long, polished fingernails she would push and pull crumbs from our meal together and create an unintented drawing after each meal. Like looking at clouds passing me by I saw birds, blades of grass and sea shells. We would be talking about the weather or Murder She Wrote, perhaps the evening's plans and all the while I watched her hands glide across the table making one beautiful shape after another. Of course my grandmother also painted breathtaking portraits and landscapes but I was always taken by her crumb drawings. With the wonderment of a child looking up at the sky - I create ephemeral drawings using everyday materials from my surroundings. I embrace artistic gestures as temporary actions and viewing experiences. My image is not to be preserved or maintained - it is ever changing.
