I like to think of my art work as connected to history, yet personal and current in time and place. It's how I see things, with enough left unsaid. I work with a variety of media, hoping to engage the viewer with many sensations. My "Uniformed" series stems from my parochial school upbringing and working for three decades in the field of nursing. I typically produce art works in series on topics ranging from dogs to politics, landscapes to hula dancing.
