My aim is to reflect beauty and things noble in my work. I want to draw the human spirit into a positive and feel good experience. I enjoy the discipline of realism and figurative work, which is found in the works of the Old Masters. I am inspired by everything around me, but especially, by my family and my love for all animals. I agree with Van Gogh who said; 'it is good to love many things, for therein lies the true strength, and whosoever loves much performs much, and can accomplish much, and what is done in love, is well done'.
