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.

Recycled 16x20 200.00

I keep thinking I will find the perfect old bicycle to do this way. I love the idea of flowers growing in the spokes. However, old bikes are a popular find at antique shops and flea markets-maybe someday. The bike I had and sold in a yard sale would be rusted by now. Knowing what to keep is an art form. Recycled is displayed at Marble Gate Gallery and has yet to find a home.
