Artist Statement:

I was born in Indianapolis, but moved away decades ago when I was too young to remember.  After growing up in Michigan, moving to New York City to attend art school, then moving to Minnesota(Twin Cities) for work and raising a family, I have finally come full circle by returning to the Circle City.

My paintings celebrate the city and the places where people gather. My deep interest in urban design and dynamics fuel my desire to portray this vitality. I like to focus on the positive elements that connect us all.

Another theme in some of my paintings is bicycling. Bicycling connects people and communities both physically and spiritually. This show marks a point in my ongoing exploration of these themes.
