After years of traveling and experiencing people up front and personal, through a number of scenarios and situations, I felt it was best to create art that addresses the numerous challenges and triumphs we all face throughout life. There are more similarities we have that makes us "human" than what makes us differ as "people". However, it is best to enjoy our differences... For the sea would never move if not for the ebb and flow of waves. The eyes could not see if not for spectrum of color, form, contour, and contrast. Therefore, art above all other forms of creation is the most expressive because we take away more from a painting or sculpture than the passion that was placed within it.
