From the artist…
“Art adds a balance to my life. I am compelled by nature to emulate its beauty through creation. When I am at my easel, nothing else matters except the moment when I escape into the painting. When a work is going well, I am filled with a sense of peace, and I naturally apply that peace, with brush strokes, to a magnificent completion.”
