The work that I create reflects an ongoing inner dialogue between my worldly experiences and the landscape within my being, a dance that I believe we all engage in on a daily basis. A rich enjoyment comes from participating in this activity as it unfolds. This interaction is not perfect, but at best an exchange of emotions that results in artistic endeavor. My hope is that there is a moment of understanding that connects the inner and outer realities of life, an understanding that is portrayed in my work.
