Artist Statement:“Although the inspiration for my work comes from many different sources, I am especially drawn to nature, music, poetry, and the world of dreams and emotions. Through the exploration of color, form and texture—whether representational or abstract—I hope to create a visual dialogue between the image and the viewer, and thereby building a bridge for universal communication and understanding.”
