Artist's Statement:

My hope is that my artwork will bring the viewer to a universal place, a place of serenity based in reality. I want my artwork to remind people of what is good and real, what is attainable. I want to take them to a spiritual place where they can confirm or reevaluate what is important and essential to them. I want to evoke peaceful, sustainable inspiration. I consider my work to be an expression of the exploration of myself and my position and responsibility in the world as a creative being.
