"My paintings are inspired by my own dreams, by music and literature."

I have never taken art classes and am self-taught, always striving to transmit my feelings through my art. I've participated in several statewide contests.
"My work doesn't permit me to dedicate as much time to my art as I'd like, but this is my greatest desire. My paintings are inspired by my own dreams, by music and literature. Perhaps I don't attempt to change the world with my art, but I do attempt to raise the consciousness of my viewers to reality, good and bad, beautiful and ugly…."
