Artist’s Statement:

I am very happy that God gave me the ability and the opportunity to create Art, to think about it, and to try to comprehend and perceive my being and world around me through Art.  I tackle problems in the realm of emotions and lucid expressiveness, and I look for their resolution on the cusp of intuition and philosophy.  My creative process is directed toward investigating color, texture, and interplay of the surface of the canvas with the illusions created through visual perception of the image.  My Art is somewhat elitist and therefore is understood and appreciated by a select audience.  Nevertheless, I am convinced I am on the right path.
