ARTIST’S STATEMENT
All things in life are connected. The nature of art seems to have followed me, and my pursuit of it, throughout my life. It is always there to sustain me, to nourish and enrich my life. I feel privileged to have been granted this special gift to cherish and anchor my spiritual well being; sharing this gift seems the natural thing to do. It is our choice whether or not to recognize the message.
