“Abstract art is my language. It conveys my feelings and thoughts. Collectors of my art say that it is “full of positive energy,” “fun,” and “creative”. Each piece is original. My work is in private collections in Sarasota, Chicago, San Francisco, and New York as well as One Sarasota Tower.”
“Life inspires art and art inspires life. A Sarasota resident for ten years, the color and vibrancy of Sarasota and it’s artistic community contribute to making this an amazing place to live and create. My work reflects freedom and flow as seen through my eyes and experiences.”
