Artiststatement

If it exists in nature, why augment?
            I cannot perfect nature.

If it has been done before, why duplicate?
            I want to create my own artistic reality.

My life experiences have been diversified and spiritual.  What I express in my art embodies my autobiography.

Time does not exist.  All that exists is my own consciousness, raw emotions, thoughts, and the materials.

When I am told something cannot be done, I interpret that as a challenge to prove I can do it.

In art, there is no right or wrong—only limitless opportunities abound.

My art exists to be enjoyed by everyone, but I do not need an audience to be fulfilled.

I once read that if you are born with the creative gift of being an artist, your life’s course is predetermined; you will never be happy doing anything else.

I believe this to be true.
