“I am an American painter who has resided in Italy for three decades. This body of work was inspired by the European migrant crisis, and my experience of seeking Italian citizenship. Contact with migrants fed my desire to address the theme of displacement and loss.”  

“When trying to fathom a lifetime infatuation with smearing, drizzling, and daubing paint, I discovered that the mark is an ingrained manifestation of defacing, both spiritual and obscene. In my paintings the marks reflect trauma of loss, turmoil of war and unexpected joy.”
