"Painting and world travel are intertwined in my life. I remember the places I have been, the colors, shapes, and scenery, as well as the mood they evoked. I try to communicate their essence too others, and to share my expriences with thm through my art. I remember my feelings about my travels long after I have returned. Images appear in my work that surprise and amaze me.
I find that painting and printmaking are adventures; one starts with a blank canvas, or a piece of paper and, through the creative process, ens up with a work of art. One has to maintain integrity of spirit, and remain true to one's self."
