My paintings have been described as Narrative Symbolism. The paintings reflect my history, experiences, and the way I see my environment. I see life in a series of patterns that can almost be described as visual tapestries—full of as many as twenty-five thin, overlapping layers. The goal is to create paintings full of life’s breath that are full of boundless energy, and yet exacting. I want to combine complementary opposites. Every culture gathers for song and dance. In that movement I try to capture time. These are the times when we abandon the self to enjoy the simplicity of joy in God’s blessings.
