Artist's Statement

Daily interactions, smiles, laughs and sorrows have no cultural bounds. The similarities that make us human and the life events that cause us to be differing inspire my artistic vision. I am a people-watcher, an observer who reads body language and facial expressions and finds there my principle source of artistic inspiration.
