Artist Statement
“Painting is my method of “remembering” the important moments and conveying the significance of those touch points. I hope my paintings capture those essential intersections. A finished painting, for me, becomes the junction where the viewer and the artist meet. I endeavor to take the meaningful intersections and convert them into individual paintings. Each painting then becomes a visual record, a fragment of a larger experience.”

The Centerville Arts Commission was created by Centerville City Council to involve the citizens of the Centerville area in the visual and performing arts. For more information, call (937) 433-7151.
