Artist Statement:
Art has been a big part of my life for over 50 years, from the first time I saw Salvador Dali’s “Persistence of Memory” I knew what my future will be as an artist.
From drawing and 3d assemblages to decorative painted furniture and always acrylic painting, my life has been full of making art. I continue to be amazed, never really expecting what lies ahead, starting with the first idea and brush stroke.The challenges are always there that pushes me to create.
