As a Artist my goal is to make you see a deeper concept in what seems to be a solid
reality ,some of my subjects of Oil Paintings are very surreal others are very contempt. my goal
is to inspire those who see my work to look more carefully at the world around them, to
discover beauty in unusual places and be inspired to make positive change.
