My Thesis project is about self discovery and personal creation. I believe that contemplation and imagination are essential not only to the artist in creating his art, but to every man as he creates his life. I am interested in the primary purpose that art once had; the subtle magic that primitive artists invoked, hoping to protect, to change or to heal the inhabitants of earth. In my paintings, I want the inner world of the mind to marry reality, the two combining as powerful evocations of man's creative potential.
