Artist Statement

"Midway upon the journey of our life
I found myself within a forest dark,
For the straightforward pathway had been lost."
-Dante Alighieri, The Divine Comedy: The Inferno

I am composed of texture, strokes and shapes.
I survive, move, dance, run.
Collecting and dragging.
Aching. My joints are arthritic.
The journey is unclear,
I migrate in a fog.
