Art is an integral part of my life in so many ways.  I create it, study it, collect it, and have traveled the world to see it.   Art is my experiment seeking new avenues to provide a shared spiritual moment through expressive color.  The female form is the core of my work and indicative of all that is perfection; it resonates with the rhythm of life and with her power.  While her form may be illusive, she is white light that burns, guides and refreshes.
