Artist Statement
I am called, as an artist, to bear witness to the world that I see around me and also to the ways that I understand that world. This yields not only images of beauty and tenderness but also images of suffering. I am reminded of Albert Schweitzer's injunction to "think occasionally of the suffering of which you spare yourself the sight."
