Art is a way to capture and preserve the beauty of the earth and what we as people have created. I have been fortunate to have been able to travel to many places throughout the world. I have been impressed by some of the world’s most beautiful and interesting places which has had a significant impact on my views of art and life. I f I can capture through art what I have seen and experienced this would be my way of sharing with others. I have drawn inspiration from my spirituality, family experiences, friends and yeas of travel throughout the world for my creations as an artist.
