"I know now that I was born an artist.
I can still see my mother's facial expression as she observed me one
day, sitting in the backyard, staring at the hot midday summer sun, trying
to feel the heat as I painted a cactus plant. She called me 'Van Gogh' and
told me how nuts I had become and that it would not be long before I, too,
would cut off my ear.
By the way, I lived in New Jersey and never did see a cactus plant
until I moved to California.
Over the years art has become my main focus in life. I share the
passion with the artists who have come before me, driven to capture nature's
incredible and elusive beauty and in awe of her fleeting sparkle of light on
a rose or the many colors in the bark of a tree.
I feel blessed that I can see the world through these eyes,
although many times the results of my work are not what I see, but how I
feel inside when painting.
This I believe, is why I say I was born an artist, since art touches
me in so many ways and has become the source of my being."
