Artist Statement

There is no limitation on creating.  The artist belies the physical scientist's manifesto on the conservation of matter and energy with its implicit idea that nothing is ever really created or destroyed.  On the contrary, take three artists and direct them to paint the same still life and you will get three different still lifes.  Put pen, paint or crayon to paper and you have created something.  So all is potential.  From that as a starting point, we can work on professionalism and the quality of communication.  Pam Coulter
