There are visual treasures that surround us each day, if we take the time to notice. I represent the world around me in oil paintings of landscape, still life and portraiture to communicate my ideas regarding love of nature, people, places and faith.
A favorite quote from the Baha'i Faith reminds me of the purpose of creating art, "The source of crafts, sciences and arts is the power of reflection. Make ye every effort that out of this ideal mine there may gleam forth such pearls of wisdom and utterance as will promote the well being and harmony of all the kindreds of the earth."
It is my pleasure to offer you a moment to pause and reflect on life's treasures and my hope is that it will encourage you to notice, to truly see the beauty in your life as well.
