Artist StatementCreating art is simply a part of me. It is an expression of my thoughts, feelings, and my being. It is also a vehicle for the everyday person to express their inner selves. I often take a client's thoughts and ideas and translate them into the medium I believe will best capture them. As a result a unique piece is created.
