Of my work my favorite is Synergy.
Synergy captures a glowing man emerging out of
darkness. Grounded on Earth he accepts the light and
water from the Universe and his spirit springs out
from his solar plexus to surround his being with
waves of light.
Art is a beacon. The nature of it is to get the
audience to experience a moment that is worth
living. Anything to the contrary is like whining to
the universe about a storm, no amount of wishing
will change the nature of it. But within our human
experiences there is so much worth experiencing:
love; joy; pain; mourning; movement; and light. When
I embark on a major work I choose very carefully
what kind of experience I want devote months and
The time I feel bliss the strongest, other than in
love making, is when I am creating art. My awareness
of the outer world is heightened, my inner network
is flowing effortlessly, and my heart overflows from
an abundance of light. And I feel a synergistic
connection between my soul and earth, time, space,
air, and water.
I can't think of a better experience than this kind
