“ This work is simply about beginnings, and endings, and the cyclical process of renewal and rebirth.  Today, I had the startling awe-striking opportunity to watch a herd of cattle gather en masse to grieve for a cow that had died in child birth. The large herd surrounded the cow and “brayed” and mourned for their own while in the field, 5 or  6 newly born calves took their first steps on spindly legs.

I’ve been fascinated with simple, recognizable shapes – human, natural and manmade –  that can connote passages and stages. They often carry a bevy of human emotions. I combine and juxtapose these elements to create a narrative in each painting.”
