Artist Statement My art is born of darkness.
Prior to 2009, I was consumed by my job to the exclusion of my family, my God, and the truth of who I was meant to be. I was extremely successful in what I “accomplished.”
In 2009, as the pressures and excesses mounted, I was toppled and descended into a profound depression. I was out of work for two months. When I returned I was transferred into a less stressful, less prominent position. Some would call it failure.
As I recovered, I found solace through Photo Shop. I began making pictures and eventually reclaimed my life through art. The images I create speak to the person who was hidden for all those years. I am liberated from the mundane world I once dominated.
Now, at age 62, I show my work at mountain art fairs here in Colorado. People are excited by my images, and I consider myself moderately successful.
I will retire soon, and I don’t know what the future has in store for me. I do know that this journey is not over, and it includes my family, my God, and the truth of who I am today.
