Artist Statement“It has been said that a picture can tell a thousand words. Through art a story can be told, specific details can be shared, and emotions may even be conveyed. In my work I try to express how I perceive the environment around me; a friend, yesterday’s sunset, a dish on the table, etc. My hope is that the moments I share create a sense of peace to the viewer – a peace worth remembering.”
