Despite the world's much emphasized differences between peoples, groups and nations, there remain important commonalities - distinct aspects of being human that can be found in every individual. For example, all of us have a deep longing to experience joy, peace and love. I believe these longings have been placed in all of our hearts by The Creator.
As a creator myself (that's creator with a small "c"), I find that art can play a helpful role in finding a measure of these treasured goals. Whether or not you are shopping for art, as you look through my website today, I hope to touch your heart with a measure of joy, peace and love. And if you are inspired to make a purchase, that's available here too. Thanks for visiting.
