Artist's Statement
I find the world a labyrinth of paradoxes. I paint this world as I feel it- beautiful and grotesque. My paintings are like prayers. Sitting there, at the easel, all of life''s dilemmas of the mind, heart ache, down-trodden, and little hope, my mind meanders like a mediative monk, seeking spiritual rectification, I confront myself and all reality as I paint. I try to make paintings that are a heaven for the mind. A place for the mind to play, unadulterated, the art speaks on its spiritual, symbolic level; unabashed, the personality can shine through, and the humanity is embraced. Flawed, I realize, in pain, paintings are done. My spiritual views are Buddhist and Taoist. I was born a Westerner but my heart is akin to the ancients of the East.
