“To Be Able to See All the Little Details” was created because I have never been very good with details. They tend to overwhelm me. But as a child, my dad constantly pointed me to the tiny details in life and taught me to appreciate the magnificence of the often overlooked. We looked at bugs under the microscope, we looked at pond scum to see life swimming around, we looked up at the sky with binoculars, and we took time to read and understand the details of life and logic. I’ll always be thankful for the way my dad pointed out the details and helped me to develop an appreciation for the majesty of the tiny things in life.
My work is about the tensions in life – about the difficulties and struggles we face – and how we respond to them. My hope is that when you are faced with your own struggle, my work will encourage you to have hope and joy. The figures in the pieces may feel sad, but they also dance. They may have limitations in their surroundings, still they push through. The plants and flowers are symbolic of growth and persistence. The change that plants experience – from seed to bud to beautiful bloom – is an example of how change can make us beautiful – if we allow it. To me, the most important things in life are the people around us and the decisions we make in response to what life throws at us.
You may see in my paintings the hardness of life – the grief, sadness, anger, and hurt – while also offering the idea that there is hope for healing and growth through the struggle. It is intended to inspire you to live at peace with the complexity of a world full of storms and sunshine - while we mourn the deep loss we each experience, we still seek reasons for hope and joy.
