I have a vision. It's to do with the last great frontier between our world and the world of the fourth dimension, the spirit world. Of course all art is spiritual. However since childhood I was somewhat open to the spirit world so that today my paintings are inspired by dreams and impressions of a sort of universal cosmic heart expressed as a kind of longing for a world of love and peace for all humankind. I feel very optimistic that that is the direction our world is moving towards, despite contradictions to the opposite. Through the medium of color, form and texture I am trying no less to make the invisible visible, and as with so many wonderful artists today I do believe such a thing is possible.
