Artists Statement:

I like impact and simplicity in my work. I feel that I should be able to convey a message, emotion or mood without a lot of details. Although some of my paintings are smaller, I do like working on a large scale with bold color. Art has been my passion, and has been made possible by some very special people, Annie Tully, Andy Fagiolo and Margaret Tully/Nicosia.
