Artist Statement

I collaborate with my Sister June, we really enjoy breaking new ground, finding wider scopes and challenges for our designs. We hope an emotional emphasis is evident in our artwork after hours of defining our feelings and memories into the picture, conveying our experiences in life, to instinctively create a vehicle to convey what cannot be said in words.
