Statement

Praise is like food to me and my art has allowed me to eat well.

Everything I touch is art to me. Everything I see is art in some way. I'm a dreamer and it shows in my art. From what I'd like to do to where I'd like to live, it can all be found in my art.

Recently Iconic Art is my calling. I've created a body of Alters and art centered on merging old and new religous icons. My attempt is to show the reality of religon that if often hidden behind the beauty and the pomp.

I am a residential designer and a worker bee who loves to be hands on. My hands are my life.
