Discovering the spirit of life, letting it speak to the depth of my soul and then sharing this with others, through my art, is why I paint. It is a vehicle for appreciating humanity and nature more intimately, and a way to share this richness with others. To see in what you have created, the object, yourself, and something of the mystery of life is deeply fulfilling. There is so much that can be expressed through the art of creation, so many intimate connections to be felt and shared. In paint I try to express the intensity of life as I see it and feel it while searching for what makes art move viewers to a more powerful relationships to life. There is no end to the emotional encounters and the visual images in one’s life. Each image that I create, each emotion that I express, and each painting that I complete stimulates me to create again.
