“Art, to me, is a means to escape the rat race world we live in and go to a more tranquil, pleasant and sometimes whimsical place. It can take us back in time to a memory or project us forward to the next season’s beauty. It expresses the joy of life as well as the melancholy. It is capturing the essence of the moment whether experienced in life or devised in our imagination. When most artists create, time stands still for them-- an afternoon can pass in an exhaled breath. And yet, in that time spent, something comes to life that can touch a cord in viewers and speak to their inner person. This is the gift of art.”
