Artist Statement
I strive to make art that touches people's hearts, either abstract or figurative and has spiritual meaning for me. Though my art, I hope to connect with others with beauty of harmony, color form and energy. Dreams and meditation often give me a starting point on an image. Then comes the application of many layers of molten beeswax, resin and pigments; each layer hear fused into the existing surface. At times I draw or paint on the layers and then scrape and rebuild the facade. This action is much like analyzing a dream. Layer after layer is applied, scraped, incised, fused and marked to allow the truth of the piece to speak.

I just received my book. I am very surprised that the book is only six and three quarters inch square and one quarter inch deep. It is a very tiny book. For the price I am really amazed that there is not a more substantial book. I look forward to reading it and it looks like there are some good tips. The last twenty five percent of the pages are images of portraits with no instruction or type.

Thank you. I planned it small enough that you can take it into your studio and work from it. Enjoy.
