Artist Statement

The Red Wheelbarrow

By William Carlos Williams

so much depends


a red wheel


glazed with rain


beside the white



I would like to thank everyone who has given me encouragement along the way…

the people who visited me in my studio, come to shows, bought a piece or simply have given me the inspiration to make another.  I owe special thanks to Pat Atkin, Patricia du Pont, Barkely Hendricks, Maureen McCabe, Bruce Dorfman, Todd Shearer, my sister, Hilary Allinson, my mother who taught me how to see, Ginger Kilbane, my father who was my biggest fan, Paul Kilbane, Peter Dixon, and my muse, our son, Miles Dixon.
