Artist Statement - My Beads are small abstract landscapes. Distilling the landscape down to the essential components allow me to get to the heart of a scene. A simple wave evokes the feeling of being on the beach, an ocean scene suggests the joy of snorkeling, nature scenes in silhouette are reminders of a quiet evening walk.
