“My paintings are labors of love, full of heart and intensity. I endeavor to create works of substance and beauty, share tenderness and generosity towards my fellow man, and leave something behind that will serve others. I strive to create objects of human value: serving to enrich this world, to connect the lonely, to console and revivify our wounded hearts and somnolent minds. I love to explore the rich connection between strangers, the long unbroken line of human endeavors and ideals, and the heroic heart within. I am fascinated with symbols of great significance in seemingly mundane environments, the invisible yet perceptible quality of awareness, emotions, experiences, memories and expectations, the ethereal nature of the human soul and a searching for comfort and familiarity in the sublime unknown.
It is my belief that art can help us to refocus our attentions on our most important beliefs, expand the scope of our compassion and understanding, and connect us with those who have walked a different path, in a different place. I strive to capture a glimpse of the beauty, awe and wonder of this world before I leave it, and to share that with others.”
