Creative expression surrounds us, in dance, in a craft, in a song or a novel, in a life's work. What is this spark, held commonly, igniting varied expressions? It is a clue to the source of our common humanity. It is a spark that binds, in a world full of divisions. It is my task to find and express in paint, that which binds us, beyond culture and beyond symbols.

Therefore, I work with acrylics as the mediumís medium. I paint as a empty vessel, receptive. My aim is to paint without ego, and without object. My challenge is to yield to the creative process, hoping to find revealed what each of us shares. I paint without a message, but not without a voice.
