"I find the visual arts an opportune place to freely inquire about and understand the world in which we live. It is a place to reflect upon experiences and make intuitive leaps. It is a point of departure as well as a place of return. I look analytically to science and philosophy in order to glean information and inspiration from our attempt to understand, as well as communicate about the natural world. I use this information as the foundation for generative systems that are guided by memory, emotion, and intuition, resulting in work that strives to be both personal and objective. I enjoy exploring these ideas in a variety of media including drawing, painting and print. Moving through media allows me to stay in a mode of continuous questioning, discovery and risk."

"My specialized area of research is focused on modern and contemporary American art, specifically contextual and theoretical issues associated with the Abstract Expressionist, Neo-Dada and Pop Art movements. I am particularly interested in studying the intersection of these artistic tendencies with forms of mass visual culture, as well as their relation to trends in American philosophical thought."

"My personal, creative photography is primarily of landscapes and nature details and is a mixture of color digital images and large format black & white images, made using a 4" x 5" field camera, analog film and traditional darkroom methods. Recent self-assigned projects have involved multiple trips to the American Southwest to photograph isolated, ancient pueblo ruins sites, a trip to Peru to photograph Machu Picchu and other Incan ruins, and a project photographing receding glaciers in Alaska, Montana, and the Canadian Rockies. Photographs from the ancient pueblo ruins and Inca sites are part of a sizeable solo exhibit titled 'Ancient Echoes in Stone.' The glacier images from Alaska were part of a recent solo exhibit, and fieldwork on that glacier project is ongoing. I also have many years of experience doing editorial, commercial and industrial photography on a freelance basis."

"I paint the landscapes of southern Spain and western Illinois. What compels me is how light, form, colour, and composition are informed by the feeling of walking a terrain, working in all kinds of weather and fusing several moments of time into one painting. These elemental experiences evoke and structure a sense of place. Also, feminist theory and modernism, contemporary painting, printmaking and drawing are current research interests."
