"Flannery O’conner said great Art should be based on observed facts, 'that make actual the mystery of our position on Earth.' My paintings are about the world I observe around me. I want the facts that I have observed to be “transfigured by love” and conveyed in paint.
In our distracted and virtual-driven culture, painting offers something vital: An invitation to slow down and become aware. I believe in the mystery of a deeper spiritual reality above and beyond the facts of the material world. Because of this, a spot of light on an apple, or the curve of a tree limb can be full of significance."
