Artist's Statement

The only thing that is meaningful is creating. It's the ultimate purpose. The process of making art is a triumph. It's an assertion that you're living life your own way. It's very much about emotion and love and belief in the creative process as a meaningful activity, even though that activity is impractical. My philosophy is "How many different ways can you recreate yourself in a lifetime?" That's a worthy goal. This is the kind of individual I am. I have no choice. This is the way I choose to spend my life. It's that simple. Being an artist.

I would like to stir an "aah" when visitors encounter my work. This is how I communicate what my heart feels. It's the creative spirit expressing itself with vitality, humanity and purpose.
