I like art that expresses mystery. My paintings are not straightforward representations of the subject matter, but an imprint of the emotional, psychological, and physical journeys that I have experienced. I look for the sociological relationships in imagery and represent this aspect to make my statements. I believe there is always a “picture” beyond or beneath the scene we first catch with our eyes. I endeavor to express the puzzle or mystique of life with my art, rather than the realistic visual form. My diary is brushed from acrylic and oil, not written in ink. It is full of humor, wit, tragedy, and love.
