Artist Statement

Art comprises a multitude of styles and appearances. No matter how different the presentation may be, we can all discover what we love in all genres. One cannot ignore parallels with past and current day issues regarding multiculturalism. Understanding our differences and being able to coexist and interact with each other in peace is paramount. We ride the train of life together, accepting others as they are and seeing the beauty within us.
