Artist Statement

“Somehow through mere paint on a canvas, it speaks, stirring your soul.” -anonymous

“It is my wish to invoke a sense of curiosity. Each painting contains various images and icons, some of which come from objects in my studio and others from my imagination.

Often, I have only a vague understanding of my paintings or why I put such disparate objects together. It seems as though they take on new meaning as time passes.

I enjoy that they are organic and can “grow” even long after they have left my possession. I encourage viewers to compose their own stories from my images and become part of the process.”
