Artist Statement

I believe that the human condition in its drama and humor can be depicted by various arrangements of objects on tHe table top. I collect material objects and make terracotta figurines that are used as props in my set-up from which I then make paintings. Biblical stories, mythologies and made-up tales are all used as metaphors in my watercolors. Adding a collage element gives depth to my narratives.

I also collect and use colons as props. They are carved wooden depictions of West Africans in the occupational attire of 20th century colonists. They suggest the symbolism of domination. Personal Injury implies assault & battery, an accident, liability, a catastrophic event, or something defamatory.
