Artist Statement


I want to make the kind of art that touches our souls and renews our spirits.  My creations are brightly colored because I try to make them appear to be full of light and energy that flows and leads us into and around each piece.  In my art, I make connections between the natural and spiritual worlds as my creative way of honoring life as sacred, precious and beautiful.  It is my hope that my art inspires others to reflect on deeper, symbolic meanings in life and that it can help them to get a sense that there is something sacred in this world.
