Bridging the Generation Gap

Artist Statement

My artwork navigates, through colorful visual storytelling pertaining to the modern American way of life, our relationships with the environment and nature and what it means to live in healthy communities. Often these themes are combined into multi-media endeavors that incorporate mundane domestic objects done with whimsical touch and humor. This piece focuses on the differences between the younger generation, which represents a new world and a new way of thinking, and the older generation which represents an older thinking. The artwork depicts how the two find a common language to communicate with each other and bridge the differences in a positive and constructive manner. I hope it will invoke a conversation which will inspire others to explore how we bridge the gap between our different world views.
