"My work is based in history and cultural expression reaching back in time. The interpretation of civilizations earliest art, the visual motif and gestural marks of our ancient ancestors appeal to modern artistic sensibilities and continue to inspire me.
Cold Wax and Oil or Acrylic and Mixed Media are used as a vehicle to link our contemporary aesthetic to the past “mark-makers”, as a language passed from one generation to the next." - Diane Lounsberry-Williams
