My challenge as an artist is to engage the viewer’s mind beyond the image, eliciting a thoughtful and meditative approach to the work, causing one to search for a connection that is personally meaningful.

The opening reception will be held on Saturday, February 9, 2019 from 5:30-7pm in the Schmidt.
