"Every subject I paint (no matter the medium) I need to show in its strength-- not in delicacy. I push the images forward for the impact to be experienced."
"I am driven to catch beauty before its destruction."
"I am passionate about the patterns of shadows cast across highways; the marsh in October turning from green to the color of wheat; the sound of a violin playedin the empty columbarium of a Church, and by the cry of need heard across our world."
"The Arts are a diary of what is, of the moment, how it relates to our past and future. Do we celebrate, or are we the voice of nightmares? Or both?"
