“I have lived in all parts of the country and sought to create art that reflected the best of the people and the places I lived, even if the reality was not pretty. I have worked with all ages of people, from toddlers to seniors and believe everyone has some insight and something to contribute to the way we see and understand the world.
I want to reach people in a real way and create community with my works. I strive to make my artwork a reflecting pool, a table of nourishment for thought, action, and truth, and a progressive force in recognizing and conveying a truth. This is my passion, reasoning and philosophical approach to art - it is the highest form of communication I aspire to.”
