Artist Statement
“I delight in exploring a wide range of subjects, color schemes, and variations in the handling of those subjects. To me art is a celebration. It should please the eye, engage the soul, inspire wonder, and if possible, make the viewer think about the meaning and richness of our inner lives and the visual world around us.”
