Artist Statement:
Although I have lived in several places in North America and traveled some, the island is my home.  There are stories of me being drawn to movement and color since I was little.  In fact, I got art supplies for celebrations instead of toys.  Throughout the years I have dabbled in numerous mediums and materials.  I have created sculpture with wood, wire and clay.  I am a professional seamstress, paint and work with many other materials.  During my Masters in Art Education I learned to let go during the process of making art.  Since then I have been described as “grounded spontaneity”.  Therefore,  I have something in mind for my own pieces and use this concept when I teach at school and in the community.   Connecting to my surroundings, thoughts and ideas guides me.  Enjoy where it takes you!
