I feel very fortunate to be involved in the vocation of art.
Hopefully when you view my work you will see the nurturing hand of
the admiring eye of a realist, and spirited soul of an artist.
Is is my dream to
share with others the reflections of God's beautiful creations.
I hope that the
art I create will inspire your spirit.
