Artist Statement

Being a secret shy person I like to conjure stories from glimpses of life seen and overheard. I like incomplete stories, moments unresolved, experienced, read, remembered, witnessed.

When I had so many of these pieces on my studio walls this past year it seemed I was looking at apartment building windows with bits and pieces of life. And I, the on looker.
