Following is a brief statement of his artistic philosophy:
“Artist are often the dreamers that promote change in our social and cultural lives as well as chroniclers of our actions or lack thereof. Our art can be expressed through many media, styles, and subject matters. Watercolor is spontaneous and unpredictable, and that excites my artistic nature. Further watercolors inherent luminosity and flexibility in application and textures enhance my ability to express my subjects. As artists we not only endeavor to trick the eye but must attempt to stimulate the mind and spirit!”
