ARTIST'S STATEMENT:

The act of creation is one of the best qualities we human beings possess. I rely on an intuitive process. I "look": into myself and allow whatever is there to emerge and express itself in images born in my imagination. The result is a work that is spontaneous and childlike. I use form and color to describe this inner world which is sometimes jubilant, sometimes sad, but always honest and direct.
