"I want my expressions to invoke emotions of love and warmth. My goal is to inspire others to see beyond the obvious and to experience my work through feelings. The use of discernible colors in my landscapes serves as my medium to convey my deep inner feelings of freedom. I am excited by contrasting perceptions of our shared world recognizing that each person sees and feels something unique to them as they encounter my artistic expressions. Of course, that is the inherent beauty of art."
