Artist Statement

“It touches my soul”, an art enthusiast comments on one of my paintings – memorable words that reflect how the arts influence my everyday life.

Paint, music, and an energy fuse together and casually flow from my knife to the canvas… subject unknown. Although a lifelong fascination with the fine arts’ capacity to express and evoke emotions, eventually reveals itself in a figure, a landscape, or an abstract composition.

My passion is in the transparent orchestration of all the layers in a manner that they work in harmony and build up to a moment when I can stand back and feel… “it touches my soul”.
