I feel very fortunate to be an artist.                           This journey has simply been about appreciation.       To breathe in the world every day, every second,     and realize that I am evolving constantly.                 My job is to capture the spirit of the subject and to create something which endures longer than life itself.

My wish is that the viewer will experience the        fourth dimension of my work, which is a feeling.
