A FEW WORDS FROM THE ARTIST.
"I believe strongly in the quality, impact and
presentation of my work. After being an artist for over two decades, I have found what I
believe to be the true meaning of what an artist really is. It is much more than a talent
with brush, pen or chisel. It is a very personal expression of my love of life, earth,
people and an understanding of humanity. I believe my personality, attitude perception of
reality will always be artistic."
