ARTISTS STATEMENT: My art is an expression
of my spirit to the spirit of others that connect with it.
I seek to create a memory, a wish, a fantasy
or moment of joy or peace in the soul of the viewer.
I pursue ideas, color combinations or images that
attract my attention and paint them as an impression;
or abstraction and some paintings are just for the
fun of presenting something in an unusual manner.
