I believe the presence of art in our lives provides both healing and inspiration. When we choose to live with a piece of art, we form a relationship with the artwork and, by extension, with the artist themselves. The energy we perceive in a work of art is a presence in our daily lives; tangible art speaks to us and gives meaning to our environments.

In my painting, romance is not dead: There is love. There is ritual. There is courtship. There is the patience that I’ve known only in my deepest, most committed intimate relationships. Like an intimate partner, I feel a sense of loyalty, fascination and commitment to my art; it’s a beautiful love affair. My paintings represent bringing order to chaos – a unification of the masculine and the feminine. My hope is to allow my collectors to transport themselves to the place of creativity when the piece was painted and remind them that they, too, have the capacity to access this realm.
