“My goal in my current work is to go beyond the realism. I want to explore the energy, life, and vitality of the nature of my subject and theme. As an artist, I want to draw you, the viewer, into that kinetic energy and feel it in your own soul. I hope my artwork makes you smile, wonder, tilt your head, ponder and engage, as you join into the energy of each art work.”
