Having and have not recovered from many of life's challenges I use art as my shield, my mouthpiece, my sanctuary. I have taught art for 30 years and now am delving deeper. My audience is varied. Members of my congregation and members of my collective and community relate to my paintings, mix media pieces, sculptures in extraordinary ways. Their feedback enriches my life. I attempt to communicate reality through metaphor and feeling through all the elements emphasizing the unexpected and incongruous. Most of the time my art pieces do not match the couch, so to speak, but they attempt to take the viewer on a journey with me.
