About the Process
At the core of my work is a search for ways to express the interaction between mankind and the natural world. Art is also a way of expressing my deepest inner feelings and finding a new way of seeing. I am able to bring my feelings to life by creating unique shapes, forms and colors. This experience can often bring profound joy and a deeper connection to the world. I am now showing my art for others to experience, and moved when others participate in the viewing.
