Artist’s Statement

Passionate about life, I paint all that touches my senses...nature, life, emotion, thought, prayer.

I am a keeper of traditions and secrets of the masters, sanctuary for the innocent.

Impasto, gold, glazes...the brilliance of the pure hue.

My palettes evolve from series to series; I work on 10-12 paintings at once.

Dual artistic existence cradles my expression from Byzantine rituals to secular delights.
