Artist's Statement:
My work deals with the contrast between balance and imbalance, control and the lack there of. Specifically, I explore the movement of the human body through space and time. My interest in the nature of the human form comes from living with cerebral palsy a physical disability. Over the years I have developed two caricatures that have allowed me to show how I see my body. The two caricatures often look like an adult helping a child or two friends. One caricature acts as my cerebral palsy, the other caricature as my personality. The caricatures can stand alone or become one. My work tells a story, with many small moments that show the passage of time. All my paintings, drawings, and illustrations are pieces of this story.
