Like Paul Klee, I, too, am a romantic and see painting, or the creative act "as a magical experience in which the artist in moments of illumination is able to combine an inner vision with an outer experience of the world in the visible rendering of a ‘truth’ that was not ‘truth to man or nature but was itself parallel to and capable of illuminating the essence of nature." Or, as Frank Stella would say, "what you see is what you get."

In my mind, flowers are a universal language. The abundance of flowers in my work is both an indication of my longing for Spring and my desire to reach out to the viewer.
