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.
