Artist's Statement

Throughout my life I have been attracted to the stories I have encountered in mythology and religion, and this has been expressed in much of my work. At an early age I questioned the meaning and purpose behind these stories and the messages they were imparting.

My paintings began to use stories within mythology, along with my perspective of right and wrong, as a framework for addressing current issues faced by society. While my use of mythology has been vital, my current work has established a more immediate relevance. With the use of traditional mythology as a foundation, I see the new work as a kind of new mythology---new stories, commenting on current issues.
