"I have spent most of my life painting places and things I love. What is important to me is that my paintings express the feelings that I felt while painting the subject. I want the viewer to move into the painting both physically and emotionally while seeing the impressions of each scene, each place and each moment in time. The most important thing I have learned is to have my own unique vision of life."
