From Paleolithic to present, art speaks directly to us about the artist’s world and experiences in
life. I hope that my work continues that unbroken line of expressing our common experiences -
beautiful trees and vivid skies, the exhilarating cool of an early fall breeze, the dance of spring
flowers, the magic of observing a wild creature - all fleeting miracles that fill and enrich each of
us. I hope to always create art, and in so doing, expand that common ground where we all
celebrate beauty and sing the song of life.
