|"I started painting as a
child. My mother was my mentor."
"I use different media for a variety of effects. Some subjects are better candidates for a particular media than others."
"I love the glow of sunlight or the deep mystery of night."
"Shapes, textures and explosions of pure color, delight me."
"Depending on the subject or media I choose, a painting can take from 1/2 hour to 1/2 year to complete."
"I paint for the sheer joy of creativity."
"I want to convey a feeling
or mood of the beauty and intimacy of nature around me."
