These previous years has been the most persuasive years for my art. I've made colossal jumps understanding myself and because of that, I have a better handle on my work both conceptually and technically. My work communicates the wonders that life offers, frequently essentially found by diving into the normal world that encompasses us. I make art to satisfy a need deep in my soul to create, to utilize my hands to say, with color and form, something that my words can’t. Nature has always been my main source of inspiration, a safe place to wander and explore.
