ARTIST STATEMENT:

A celebration of life through the use of color and lines. A moment of time, a feeling, happenings, living life. People may look at some pieces and think, oh it's this place or that place and be done with it. Than most will look at it and think I have been there, I have felt that way, or I need to go there. Most will react with a lot of excitement and some may go bla. What ever it may be and however people feel, they start to talk and that to me is what art is about. How one relates to the pieces and the conversation generated from it.
