Artist Statement                                                                                                              

My purpose is to touch and connect with the human soul through my art. When I feel a rapport and harmony during the physical act of creating, I become one with the work. At this point, I know the truth is being expressed through my heart and soul.

My art creates itself through me. By surrendering to the process, powerful visions unfold which then can be expressed through paint and sculptural mixed media. My work has been a developmental and experimental process since childhood combining many exciting techniques. Gravitating towards artists such as Rembrandt, Van Gogh, Dali, Turner, Mary Frank and Rodin, I have assimilated these masterful qualities into my own statement. This is my purpose and contribution.
