Artist Statement

I live on the world’s largest light table, aka Lubbock, TX or The Flatlands.  It is an additive color landscape – more light than land, more horizon than pavement, more sky than earth.  My paintbrush is the sun; my subject is energy.  Bicycles, tumbleweeds and early American feminist history are my favorite subjects and reflect the geography I live in both physically and spiritually.

Solitude of Selfie, Solar Powered Painting, Weathered Botanicals, Solar Powered Paper Dolls, Spin Cycle & Weather Girl are portfolios located in the ARTWORK section of this web-site. Download my writing about these portfolios here.
