“For me, painting has become a way to express my inner feelings with shapes, lines and color. I find interest in painting abstract as I do the human form. What remains constant in all that I do, is the attempt to master illusion without making my paintings realistic for the human eye; but to feel an emotion, whether it be joyous or somber.”
