art states in a forthright manner the ancient proposition of the
triumph of beauty and truth over injustice. I do not paint the dark
side of contemporary existence, for I am dedicated to painting the
hope of the future-hope that seeds positive thoughts of love, family
and the beauty of the world. The directness of my own brand of abstract
expressionism is deeply informed with a rich, cultural, mystical
and religious symbolism that connects with people and lends my work
its compositional strength.
As a dyslexic, my art is paradoxically
both my refuge and my means of communication. Very early in life,
when I failed at everything else in school, my art became my solace.
What talent I lacked academically was more than made up for through
my art; whereas some people succeed in spite of a disability, I believe
I thrive because of mine. Now, with recognition and success, I reach
out in my charitable endeavors to help others through my art, especially
those with learning differences.
