My life is composed of tiny fragments of color, texture and form. My paintings are an extension of my faith and my connections. I’m obsessed with creating. I’m fascinated with light and dark in a physical, spiritual and literal sense. Art does not bring peace but it can be a bridge to the heart of man where it can forge healing, hope and redemption. My goal is to bring this about through visual sophistication that is sensitive to the heart.
Art is an outward expression of my feelings and thoughts. Sometimes its links are strong enough with someone else that they feel the connection. Not everyone can or should make that connection but when they do, it is deeply satisfying to me and to the viewer.
