The specific characteristics of my painting style are intended to reflect my belief in the need to focus on the intense joy of the sublime sensuality of daily phenomena. For me there’s no place for the tragic. The only purpose of painting and art is to provide answers, inspiration and direction. Being an artist is a privilege and dwelling on the tragedy in our lives leads only to a sense of futility. The moment here, now, being so brief demands appreciation and celebration.

The experience of pleasure in our world is the issue of most profound importance. The sensuality of sensations is at the very core of our spiritual nature. Both love and appreciation are embedded in sublime pleasure and this combination is the essence of our morality. It motivates us, creating a sense of care. Pleasure creates our sense of value.

For me, the fundamental purpose of painting is to explore, express and act as a tribute to that value
