When I create a painting I am alone with my thoughts. The images, though abstract, are pre-determined to some extent and filled with personal symbolism. The message, the mood and the metaphors work in harmony to evoke an emotion and provide beauty. In a world filled with deception, I am at peace when I am free to explore the truth that lies within.
