Color moves me, and at once, arrests me. To linger, to look, to indulge in the pleasure of light and color dancing on humble objects and in the ordinary scenes of my daily life—this has been my inspiration.

Recent events have rattled me, shake me from the sunny, solace of the well-composed still life. This is not a time to linger. This is a time to engage, to question, to proclaim. 

Liberty, justice, freedom are not the birthright of one party, one race, one nation. These are unalienable rights endowed by the Creator.

Around the world, stand mighty women—Lady Liberty, Lady Justice, Freedom—honoring these universal philosophies held dear by all humanity. Through my paintings, I aim to shine a light on the ideals that have mapped the course of cultures throughout history.
