"My love of nature and beauty has inspired me to make art since I was a small child. I have always been intrigued by the shape of natural forms, and the play of light on them. I do invent my own forms and colors of things, but I believe the reality of my creations already exists somewhere in the Universe. I take joy in the original expression of that which surrounds us. Ultimately, I want my paintings to express energy and a sense of wonder to the viewer.”
