Artist statement: My roots are in my heritage and ancestry. Many of my ancestors came to this continent before the Revolutionary War and I owe my sense of belonging to them. The remains of the stone house, the graves in the background represent settlement, permanence in a place and moving on through the generations. My ancestors who built their homes and were buried in their land are all but forgotten, yet their heritage lives on in me.
