"Strong feeling is the hallmark of any good painting. Painting is my way to communicate not only what I see visually, but also what I feel and sense. Careful planning is the key to a successful painting; I believe that you should plan like a turtle and paint like a rabbit allowing some room for spontaneity. This is the common denominator in each of my paintings.
Being involved with the aspects of nature is the best thing ever! It is so beautiful, peaceful, and calming. It gives the creative person his tranquility, and it can be his muse. It is full of confidence and abundance."
