Being an artist is about being present in the moment and transforming that instant of existence into a visual communication that inspires, endures and becomes an atmospheric catalyst or wellbeing. What does that mean? That means that my task is not only to look, but to perceive; everyone and everything around me. To translate all that is going on and channel that into the one vibration,the one common denominator that is resonating everywhere at that one instant in time. My game is to harmonize all of that stimuli, get it down on a two dimensional plane and then shoot it back out into the world. Applying my tools and artistic knowledge, I make all those nuances an enjoyable visible experience. Then I look at it and others look at it and feel something good about it. The product is works of art that contribute to the beauty of the viewer’s environment.
