My work is a visible expression of how I relate and respond to the world. My paintings are the vehicle through which I address our common struggle to make sense of our existence and our relationship to God.....our place in the world.
I hope that the viewer will find an immediacy to my work that triggers certain images, thoughts, dreams, memories, and visions of the future. Anything that stimulates or sets our imagination in motion, both humorous and serious, can be of use on our journey, and bring us joy.
