Artist Statement

Whether my subject is a flower that is beautiful today and fades tomorrow, the quiet dignity of the human form, or the fierce majesty of the seven seas, I am approaching my art as a way to celebrate the beauty of hope in the face of life's challenges. My desire for my viewers and collectors is that my art would spark something in you and inspire you to savor and celebrate the beauty of the life you've been given.
