“In my work, I attempt to first catch and hold the viewer's attention with color, then stimulate an awareness in thought or feeling. If this has been accomplished, then the work has succeeded. It's all about the inward journey and exploration…
“The colors used are an expression of self and experience: rhythm, chaos and order… it's a way of seeing and feeling that which is me and that which is around me… inside and outside merged.”
“In the forty plus years I have been producing paintings and sculpture, the Spirit and experience have culminated into a hybridcultural abstractthat expresses both halves of me into a comfortable philosophical safety-zone in which to bring forth work… a birthing, if you will.
“Now, I easily float back and forth between the mixing of heritage and cultural boundaries. My work has finallybecomethe bridge that Grandmother said was meant to be…”
“Everyone has a story. Life can be complicated with its twists and turns. For an artist, thesetwists and turnschange the flavor of the work. The goal of the work is to express the facts of any given imagery while maintaining the integrity of the human‘s being. I think Manet said it best:The artist's greatest gift is to create reality not copy it.”
