“I try to maintain depth in each of my works, whether mosaics or digital collages, through layers of images and colors that cause the viewer to come back repeatedly to see different things. Ideas for the mosaics/collages come from experiences, feelings, people, animals, and objects that impact my life. I have served as a UMC volunteer in missions in Bolivia, Africa, and Haiti. The art and design of these cultures continue to deeply impress and inspire me. The life situations of the indigenous peoples of these countries have also made a deep impact on me to be the voice for those who have no voice in societies of extreme poverty, corruption, prejudice, and oppression. Because I live with an invisible “disability” which limits my verbal communication at times, I use my art as a voice for these precious people so that I can tell their story. Now, due to modern advances in the study of traumatic brain injury, I am using my art to be my voice so I can tell my story.
Everyone has a story.
We just have to be willing to listen.”
