Artist's Statement:

Permission to express a natural order of life through visual means allows
for understanding and respect to human needs, concerns and dilemmas. These works are frankly confessional, illustrating, interpreting, mirroring moments and observing the fragility of life in its on going process. With such visual connections, understanding the informed, compassionate and personal environment can reflect the global environment.
