Artist's Statement

I envision my art as promoting the positive essence of the human experience. I want my paintings to wake up the audience from idling in the
impermanence of the floating world. To advance them to a level of consciousness embodied in the following declarations: Live the life. Now is the time. Focus and concentrate. I want to celebrate being alive in an interconnected realm. Absolute beauty resides in tranquility. I challenge the notion of self-serving, self-important, self-expressional art. Also, I contest the idea of art as protesting, criticizing, or merely reflecting our society. I would rather dedicate my work to preserving the good side of human nature rather than reducing it to a mere complaint. In working toward this mission, I distil and decant ingredients from my surroundings and strive to radiate them with pure energy.
