"Only through Art can Stories be captured without Words."
Life stories of pain, isolation, joy, unity. I am always intrigued by the effects of cultural
and societal messages on everyday life. I seek, through my practice and each series that I create, whether figurative or abstract, to explore the impact of these messages through my choice of surfaces, textures and forms that imbue bold or monochromatic color to command
the attention of the viewer. Heavy pigmented acrylic applied over a textured surface of thick watercolor paper or canvas on a large scale permeate my most recent practice. This includes, several series dominated by collage work ans occassional use of pastel, paint markers and india inks for detail and additional texture.
"An incurable optimist, my works portray the stories of cultural and societal life as I encounter it and when it resonates with your conscious, heart or soul my story with you is a success"
Diana Shannon Young
