In everything I do in life I believe in challenging the status quo.
I do this by thinking, living, and exploring life outside the "traditional" box.

After a difficult medical issue, I turned to art as a way to
provide new challenges to my mind and grow in so many ways.
In retrospect, learning and pursing art was a profound gift.
It stimulated me to develop
new pathways in life and build a new paradigm.
It has been the true silver lining in a storm cloud.
Art is much more complex than a fleeting image, texture, or color.
Art should evoke a visceral response with both the artist and viewer

There are 2 venues I work in:
I use my art to express the emotions and feelings that I perceive.
Such as the calm, or joy that can occur by choosing to experience a
sunrise or a sunset.
My answers and experiences are channeled to new works.
My sculptural steel pieces have varying visual expressions
when the light energy surrounding them
changes during day.
They serve as a surprising reflective voice of how our perceptions change with
the time of the day or the energy we bring to the situation.

Proper nutrition and the profound effect it has on their ongoing health.
