Just as the planets turn in rhythm, art is the expression of life. Art is powerful and fills our lives with beauty and expression. Art is my calling! I focus on the power of color and form relationships in my work. I like my images to feel spiritual, bold and alive, and I do this through the expression of feeling colors that create exciting and vibrant statements. I love to create deep emotion, feeling and atmosphere in all my paintings. Thank you for your interest in my work!
