When tulips were rare they were celebrated. The story goes that a rich sheik threw an opulent party during which large tortoises roamed among the guests with candles on their shells. It's a party I'm sorry I missed.

Between the dreams of night and day, there is not so great a difference. C. Jung My degree in Psychology, my indulgence in photography and my porous imagination have come together and spawned my art. No grand gallery showings, no important art schools, just a drive to lay my vision on paper. I'm fortunate enough to remember my dreams and these show up in my paintings. Hence, they are rife with metaphor and symbolism, painted in picture-book colors. My art tells a story, but subtly so. Depending on how the symbols resonate with you, will determine the story you see and the story changes and evolves as your life evolves. They are thoughtful pieces in an often glib world and won't shout at you, but merely beckon to come closer and have a second look.
