Artist Statement

When I was a kid in New York,  every neighborhood had vacant lots covered with trash, but they were not vacant.  There were Orb spiders, Queen Anne’s Lace,  and scraggly Sassafras trees, that smelled of root beer.  I loved those wild things growing in not so "vacant lots".

When I moved to California, and saw Redwood forests, I fell in love again. They smelled of earth, and the forest floor was a tapestry of life. As I grew to know the neighborhoods that I lived in,  I fell in love with the icons, banter and trappings of the flea market, Boardwalk, summer tourists, and my own neighbors.

In my art, I try to share "delicious little tidbits"  from these plant and people communities that have captured my heart.
