ARTIST’S STATEMENT

 
     “Thru my paintings I express feelings. Sharing knowledge and spirit of creativity this is a gift and if my work is a source of inspiration to some then our soul has met.

     I keep going through so many adjustments and at every adjustment my art changes. It is said that all that matters in art is presentation and what pleases the eye. If that is true then it is all an illusion.”
