I have been painting all my life and making art is an obsession that I embrace

with every fiber of my being. I don't follow fashion or trend but seek only to

submerge myself in that object or thing that compels me to paint it. Every

painting is a new experience and poses new challenges and solutions that

require an open mind as well as an open eye. I seek to explore the world

around me by the means within me. I am drawn to the edge of the road where

time exposes the vulnerabilities and the allure of our shared existence,

hoping that knowing where we have been might give us a glimpse as to

where we are going.
