Artist’s Statement
I paint the joy, the color and the being of life. Because I have a fondness for both people and pets, with sensitivity, my portraits capture the uniqueness of their personalities. Painting is not only my pact with other artists, it is a connection with people and with the wonder of the world around me. Because art is an essential part of who I am, I find that the more I paint, the more I have to paint.
