Inspirational Philosophy
"He who works with his hands is a laborer. He who works with his hands and his head is a craftsman.  He who works with his hands, his head, and his heart is an artist."                                                                                     
                                                                           ~ St. Francis of Assisi

 Artist Statement:  All of my work, whether it be in glass, creative photography or abstract painting, is the physical manifestation of my obsession with color.  I see my glassmaking process as being much more rigid, orderly, patient and well-defined while my painting, in all of its abstract audaciousness, requires a much less systematic and structured approach.  My creative photography harnesses aspects from both of these processes.  In its own right being systematic and methodical while, at the same time, yielding a completely random, arbitrary and ungovernable outcome.  All three, however, are equally important to me and equally necessary and contribute to an all-important sense of balance in my life.  Ultimately, I aspire to create art that stirs viewers to a deeply emotional response, even if it's only subconscious – a fitting acknowledgment to work that I hope is considered beautiful by everyone while at the same time being significant to the individual.
