“My painting process in one experimentation and discovery. While I do not work with a predetermined subject in mind, I often end up with paintings symbolic on man’s connection to the earth.

 

With life and with art, my intention is to discover and maintain a bridge between form and the formless. I make contemplative art, art focusing on a deeper awareness and alive with the mystery of being. It would please me if viewers found my work to be intriguing and uplifting.”
