Artist's Statement

Art is a direct reflection of life’s reality. My images show that reality from my personal point of view, shaped by my own life experiences and beliefs.

Using art as a means of expression I say,
"This is the what, when and where of how I see my world."  

My goal is to have others see and enjoy my work not only for its face value, but also for its integrated message that lies just beneath the surface inviting them in for a closer look.
