Art is elevated fun that brings wisdom. Art renews our sense of wonder and curiosity and reconnects us to our humanity. My job as an artist is to be faithful to my vision and to learn the tools and the disciplines necessary to manifest that vision, as powerfully and as clearly as possible, into an object that can be viewed by others. Each painting is a new beginning into uncharted territories (where most creative spirits find their inspiration) and both the artist and the viewer return, changed forever, by the many unexpected rewards of taking that leap of faith.
