“I am very fortunate to have had parents who instilled in me the value of hard work and striving to reach my goals and aspirations. At a young age I was always creating something… tinkering with this or with that. I loved creating things that no one else seemingly had ever done. Like many, I believe that true art comes from within; a passion yearning to come out. I also believe that the work of an artist is never truly finished. There’s just a pause between one expression and the next. And there is a common thread that can be seen in an artist’s work which is born from his or her spirit and projected into reality… from thought to pragmatic expression”.
