Artist Statement

My work presents a reflection of the mystery and natural beauty of God’s creation. In a world shackled by political correctness and artistic complexity, my work is direct and to the point. Nature, with its ever changing dynamics and seasons, offers its own array of natural beauty; when reflected upon, has a way of taking us to a quieter, more solitary place where we can find repose for our souls.
