Artist Statement

My works are a reaction to my surroundings. They welcome the viewer to wander through their spaces and along their paths with a sense of belonging, sharing in the belief that everything has a life of its own; a life that is continually being transformed and passed on from one place to another. In the small universe created on canvas, I see reflected an infinite appreciation of everyday life, of being.

As I work, I let things happen on their own. I move my pencils and brushes along with my mind's rhythm intuitively, almost in the manner of Zen.
