Artist statement

I feel blessed  to have inherited the "art gene" from my fathers side of the family. An uncle, cousin and my son were accomplished artists.

 

To capture the fleeting beauty of a fragile flower, the perfect moment of an awesome sunset of the essence of a person in a portrait is rewarding and frustrating at the same time.

 

Artists are seldom bored. Their eyes and hearts  are wide open to the wonders of the world and I feel at home walking among them.
