Artist Thoughts:

"My art is inspired by reality and its reflection, contrast and light of the day and shimmering, mystery of evening silence...bliss and serenity of nature, and power and greatness of the city..."

"Quiet, patient conversation of old objects and the rhythm and sharpness of contemporary times...The echoes of historic styles and epochs, images, and representation of the past and our existing century...That which we know and have loved for a long time, from the very beginning of existence..."
