​    My love of ancient artifacts, philosophy and history has influenced my character as well as my work. This melding of family history and personal cultural diversity has fused into a style that is representative of my work.

    Born into a family that has personally witnessed war, loss has sharpened my awareness of who I am. These are the ingredients that I weave into my artwork. It is with a sense of sadness to be a witness in a world that can’t learn from its past, but with a sense of hope and joy in possibilities.

    With this past and present experience I hope to formulate a current dialogue with my audience. The intent of my artwork is a message of possibilities and love. We all have similar hopes and dreams.

    These simple observations are really the important things in life that we can share and enjoy if we stop, take the chance, and time.
