Artist's Statement

I marry realistic figurative illustration with symbolic image play. Human and animal parts intertwine in vibrant colored pencil. As a poet as well as a visual artist, I am compelled by a sensual image and love to visually represent metaphor. 

I have a background in anatomical drawing from studying with the New Mexican artist Michael Hensley, with whom I have displayed my work in exhibitions at the Millicent Rogers Museum.
