“As a child I was encouraged to make pictures. My imagery comes from life experiences, from recollections of my past, stories my mother told, religious inspiration and my rich cultural heritage. For better or worse these aspects of my life have become the foundation of my art. The cultural inheritance brings a diverse richness to my art and provides me with an instinctive working process. I then translate these experiences and diversity into visual expression. My interest is not only in conveying to the viewer my personal feelings, but also our common humanity.
Over the past years I have painted with a flurry of excitement experimenting in all phases and styles of art. I have endeavored to express through my art, those things in life which represent who I am … my faith in God, pride in my race, and my love of beauty. As I continue to grow, my art will explore form, shape, color and texture”.
