ARTIST STATEMENT: How does one explain the moment of knowing something came together on canvas making it art? It has never ceased to be a joyful journey for me to take the paints, canvas, a new idea and watch them begin to work together and come to life. Time stops, the only thing that has any sense of reality is creating art. I hope you take time to browse.
