Throughout the more than 60 years of my life in Art I have been seeking a deeper invisible reality behind the appearances of what I see. My challenge is to make the invisible visual. My unending task is to be aware of the connectivity of the forms, spaces, rhythms, colors, and light that continually surround me and translate this visually into an ordered unity. What I create is part of a never ending journey to tangibly produce what I see. I look forward to tomorrow to see more and continue my journey.
