Artist's Statement 
My art is about the experience where actuality and vision meet – the reality of a given space or time and the preconceptions and associations that are brought to that moment and place. As a third culture kid, a diplomat's spouse and an American expat I have made a life as a professional stranger. I am always living between cultures and drawing connections between what is in front of me and what associations come to me as a result.  For it is when we are presented with a seemingly fresh set of circumstances that we are forced into leaving our expectations behind and a unique side of ourselves is then revealed.  From this experience of clarity or insight we may connect with ourselves, each other and our environment in a more genuine manner.
