"I love the Beauty of God’s creation. My art reflects some of the aspects that I see around me, the movement of the land, shapes, form, light and dark. Then there is color. I love to try new things and play with color bringing the shapes and forms together in composition meant to bring warmth to a cold climate and lift the spirit of the viewer. I paint with acrylics and sometimes mixed media, incorporating ink, and or paper and other materials. For me, Art is an adventure. The best part of the adventure is the reaction of people to my art. When they express how good it makes them feel."

"I am a photographer so I use the world that God has created, and what man has added to God’s creation as my canvas. I do not create anything new; I just try and show people a new view of the world. I am blessed, or cursed, with the love of seeing all things, so my subject matter goes from Nature to landscapes, mechanic subjects and all points in between. In today’s hectic schedule, too many people only see what is front of them. They do not take time to see the flowers, birds, animals, or even the dents in the walls. My job is to take things that people look at every day, but do not see. There is a door on Pearl Street in Jackson that a lot of people pass daily, but never see the football player above it. A single leaf on the river can be a great thing of beauty. With the advent of digital photography, I am able to take a lot more photos of the same thing to get the feeling I am looking for. Photos may need to be in color or black and white to achieve a different meaning. Today’s Photographer has many more tools to try and achieve the perfect photo, than the old masters of years gone by. The end result still remains the same. To make the viewer become one with the photo, to have them achieve an emotional attachment to it."
