Artist's Statement

A quote from Grant Wood describes a condition from which he and many of us suffer: taking too much for granted. Wood said, "...To my great joy, I discovered that in the very commonplace, in my native surroundings, were decorative adventures and that my only difficulty had been in taking them too much for granted." Woods' words ring with truth. My goal as an artist is to capture the wonder of the often overlooked ordinary, the commonplace beauty around us, those little details that make all the difference in our daily lives. The rough hue of rocks, lush blue woodlands, weathered wood grains, and distant meandering dirt roads never cease to appeal to me. I attempt to share the beauty from which routine blinds us. My work can be purchased on ebay or by contacting me personally.

Iron Works 18x40 $500.00

My mother used iron cook ware during my growing up years, even during the teflon era when iron cookware was given a bad name. I inherited part of her accumulated pieces, and I wouldn't trade them for all the gormet cookware in the world. I use most of the pieces now and always think of her. Cooking and eating good food was her hobby. In her opinion, no social gathering was complete without food, and no woman was worth her salt unless she knew her way around in the kitchen. Thanks, Mom.
