Who I Am
How one views the world is a critical component in progressing or regressing, as the case may be, one’s own humanity in life. I have a side-eye wariness of the world that, in my mind, is subtly nuanced and visible only to me. What other people actually see… Well.
How one views the world has everything to do with how one chooses to be in it.
I am a contemporary artist working in oils and acrylics. My style is representational and my palette is saturated, primal color. I am entranced by the relationship of color and emotion and I am influenced by the political, spiritual and sometimes cynical wariness of my generation as well as my heritage, my come- from- place. I consider that I am both a Womanist and Humanist and I use art to explore what that means to me.
I was born in Muskegon MI in 1954 – part of the baby boomer generation that emerged from the ashes of world war to question humanity — a lot. Today, I live on the outskirts of metro Atlanta where I continue my interrogation of what it means to be human.
There is more to me but I’d like not to bore you. Thank me later.
Sometimes I paint what I can see.
