Artist statement

I’m watching as a painting grows in front of my eyes and I feel I’m alive.
That sense of creation, streaming under my fingers, is incomparable, just as is the beginning of life. i’m blessed beyond ordinary.
Here, a new day in front of me: to give it value, to give it meaning, to feel the complete - that is the will of the heart.
To paint the hours, spread under my palms like a white canvas, with all the hues of passion.
To embed it with emotion from the deep my heart.
To leave the trace of me.
To give away to the world the treads of beauty that make me.
