ARTISTS STATEMENT:ï¿½ My art is the expression of my spirit to the spirit of others that connect with it.ï¿½I seek to create a memory, a wish, a fantasy or moment of joy or peace in the soul of the viewer.ï¿½ I pursue Ideas, color combinations or images that attract my attention in the abstract;ï¿½ or as an impression; and some paintings are just for the fun of presenting something in an unusual manner.ï¿½
