Statement

 

At the age of eighteen I received a camera as a gift. I loved creating my own world through its viewfinder. I have been creating images in one form or another ever since. I currently paint using oil/cold wax or acrylic. There is generally no preconceived idea before a painting is started.  I simply like to play with paint and create a piece that embodies head, heart and hand. I hope to provide you, the viewer, with an image that tickles your curiosity. " Your vision will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes." - Carl Jung

My work is in the collection of the Savannah College of Art and Design and in many private collections. I have been actively exhibiting in juried exhibitions on a regional and national level since 1994.
