Art Inspires Life | Life Inspires Art

Colors Dance on the Surface
Together They Create an Image.
Let Art Be a Part of Your Life.
Give Children Their Own Art Voice.

My purpose as an artist is to share the joy of self expression through art. The creation and reaction to art is personal. As a teacher I strive to teach students how to communicate emotion through art. Emotion can be triggered by endless sources. Media and the world all around us affects our ability to stay pure. Respecting all cultures can be achieved by exploring art from around the globe and from the beginning of time. All art forms make the human experience elevated despite our fast paced modern time. I am so fortunate to have the opportunity to share my endless passion for art with others. My lifetime goal is to inspire my four sons, students and extended friends to be on a path that makes each soul shine.
