Artist's Statement: "After thirty years as an educator, I am now opening a new chapter in my life. I feel very fortunate and grateful to be in a position to be able to pursue my passion for art full-time. My goals include increasing the quality and quantity of my work because, even though I have consistently created art during my teaching career, I now have the time and energy to focus intensively on my artwork. I believe that you advance as an artist by studying and creating art. As an artist, I don't think you should ever be altogether satisfied with your work but instead continually strive to improve and learn from each project you create."
