"I am deeply concerned with the expressionistic quality in art. I want the color and paint, itself, to convey strength, vitality and emotion. I seek inspiration from personal experience, imagination and the vivid wonderland of dreams, which translate into personal vision, through which I hope to draw spectators into my world. My art transcends reality by exploring the world of fantasy, dreams, visions and the shared human emotions dealing with fear, loneliness and isolation in an uncertain world. I have clouded childhood memories of a war that gave birth to Expressionism and has shaped my personal vision as an artist."
