Artist Statement: “Life is filled with awe-inspiring wonder. For me painting presents a challenge, an adventure, and a means of discovery which leads to a greater appreciation for God’s creation. I enjoy recording the people and places of our time in history and the vast subject matter is constantly changing and ever expanding. I believe visual art encourages one to dig deeper beyond what is seen to capture the essence of what is beyond and value its meaning. To discover the true JOY we must first appreciate the Wonder of it all.”
