"In my twenty-six years of painting, my work has gone through many evolutions. Currently much of my work has become allegorical. I use symbols and illustrated imagery to convey the issues that I see and read about in my daily life. My concerns for the world and the destruction of the eco system has been the subject matter of much of my work"
