Director Statement

In my practice as a fine art painter, I seek to represent qualities of beauty and tranquility, so that people feel uplifted after viewing the work. With my film "The Hungry Artist," I'm so glad I could bring in the quality of humor, which also uplifts and leaves us feeling lighter, something we can always use more of!
