The Artist Says:

Through representational and impressionistic works focused on powerful compositions enhanced by unusual light effects, my goal is to share my attraction to scenes and subjects which have triggered feelings of joy, wonder, serenity or mischief, and to share the new processes employed in creating each collection.
