Artist’s Statement Initially, I painted with acrylics on canvas and then switched to acrylic fabric paints on muslin. Today, my art is primarily on muslin, as well as on canvas and wood. My work, which is multicultural, spiritually centered, and social-action oriented, tells the stories of people-individuals, families, whole communities at work and play. In The Housewarming, a family has just moved in to an affordable home and invited friends and neighbors to celebrate. Several years ago, my sons and I arrived in Minneapolis with nothing but a few suitcases. Eventually, we acquired a house and built a life here. This painting expresses my gratitude to family and friends who believed in and encouraged our efforts to start over and move ahead.
