How I see it and enough left unsaid so you experience it is the intent of my art. The works are personal, connected to history, and yet current in time and place. The process engages all senses thus media varies. Three decades of nursing and parochial school upbringing eventually lead to my ‘Uniformed’ series. I continue to investigate experiences and work in a series. Hula, Commentary, and Dogs are just a few.
