Statement
"If the bustle of adult life makes us lose the child in our hearts, perhaps art will help rekindle warm memories, revive our sense of wonder & love of beauty. Life is change. As quickly as moments approach us, they disappear, each moment unique and never to be again. Isn't it wonderful that through art we can capture a moment to share with the future; not only as a record, but as an emotion. ...A held moment in time, yet its message will change...generations come and go, but the art remains."
