ARTIST’S STATEMENT

​I Love to create. Creating paintings gives me a way to show off my imagination without depending on others. It also gives me the power to touch someone. To bring back fond memories. To make people aware of their beautiful surroundings. To alter a mood. To dramatize the quest for survival or happiness. I often portray many of our world's magnificent creatures in their natural surroundings. I do my best to glorify them. To warm our hearts to them and be thankful for their creation.
