"I believe that art is as capricious as nature’s own whims. It is as permanent as the endless striving for universal harmony, but in a constant flux. My technique is varied with mood and empathy for the subject matter or motif. Nature provides the catalyst human or otherwise with this constant flux of rhythms, shapes and boundless energy. Each painting speaks for itself and has a life of its own. I am the stoker of the energy, the catalyzer."
