Everyone should turn towards the Mystery of their own nature the way a sunflower turns toward the sun. This is what living has revealed to me and what I seek to embody in the images that find their way out of me and onto the canvas. I am deeply fascinated by the many shapes and forms that spirit takes in the mundane world. I peer between the seams of things and look for their origin. What is born on canvas is as much a surprise to me as to the incidental viewer. Like a pomegranate, the paintings have as many meanings as the seeds found within ... each one enchanted. In this way one can travel above, below and within.
