Vision and Purpose
Because I am a theater director and choreographer. I have always loved to tell a story, create a “picture”, focus on an issue, an emotion, a conflict, a universal connection that somehow dictates how we act, react, live. Due to this performance background, I find that as a visual artist I especially love to paint pictures that tell a story…that make a statement about the human condition, the universal connections that move our souls.
