“I am constantly fascinated by what I see around me.  I do not try to duplicate what I see, but make my own interpretation.”

“When people ask me, What kind of art do you make? I answer, I do everything. From painting, drawing, sculpture and assemblage, using all kinds of mediums, I am able to move between the lines of recognizable and abstract images, and feel the freedom to go in all kinds of different directions.”
