The Artist has shared that "I’ve always seen myself as a versatile artist, with a foundation in landscape painting...but as time passed, and I grew as a person, spiritually and artistically, I discovered that my artistic fervor encompassed elements of surrealism, atmospheric exploration and dream-like transitions.
I could not imagine a world without art...I see art as a healing force for the Universe and the life that inhabits it. Art is, and always has been a friend to me- it is comforting, it is my lover, and my mother...art is the reason I place my feet on the floor each and every morning....it is the driving force in my soul...the reason I draw breath...without it, I would simply wither and blow away.”
