"Art is another means of helping people see and better understand the dynamics of our world and how human consciousness impacts it at every level."

"My intention in my creative process is to catch attention by creating a visual dialog that the viewer can intimately identify with."

"The challenge for me as an artist is to go beyond the internal barriers that separate us from each other. What I want is for my art to act as a "reflection of self" in such a way that it awakens a glimmer of understanding and compassion both for the "child within" and - by extension - for children everywhere. I approach my work not as a politician, or as a social worker, but only as an artist interested in drawing attention to children’s issues."


"My newest body of work includes abstraction and tiny lines of chaos that are meant to convey the state of our world today. I am exploring the psychological disjunction in our contemporary life caused by its fast pace and rapid changes. Children today have too much information, they struggle to keep their personal and/or cultural identity and try to make sense of what is real and what we believe is real. The children are painted in oil on top of a layer of resin. The resin creates layers where the images are floating in space. Acrylic pours and silver or gold leaf under the resin rearrange the image in a new way, while drips and colored lines, textures and transparencies encourage discovery. A discovery of some principle of being beyond social conventions and the internal barriers that separate us from each other."
