I am accountable as an artist to my Creator for stewardship of life, gift, career and concept of Art. Working in the light of His awesome and beautiful works, I strive toward the level of mastery which is acceptable to Him according to that measure of gift or talent with which I was born. I accept His authority, His sovereignty, His plumb line of truth, and His qualification as Master Teacher and Critic of all that I do in the name of Art. Schooled in a broad spectrum of contemporary and traditional art, what I do is by choice, with the intent of applying my best concept of design and visual grammar, to communicate a coherent message of hope and reassurance to the society in which I live, As a teacher, I share what I can demonstrate in actual performance. I am still learning.
