I believe that every act is a creative one whether or not we are aware if it, because every act first arises from the same mysterious and intangible source within.
It is the work of an Artist to consciously give life and form to this well of abstract feeling. To frame the etherial in such way as to remind and connect ourselves and the viewer with our deepest shared truths.
It is in this way that I regard my creations as soulful manifestations. My hope is that my art continues to find new meaning and purpose in the homes and hearts they are destined for.
