My art is about connections -- connecting me to others. When people view my art for the first time, they don't always see the connection between the image and the frame. As they look at my work, I love that moment when their eyes light up, and I know that they understand. It is in that instant, when they are lost in their own private thoughts and emotions creating a memory, that I know we will share a connection forever. What better legacy is there for an artist?
