Pintar es aprender a ver, como si fuece por la primera vez. Es la esencia que vive y prospera dentro de todo. Es una música visual milagrosa que se puede oír y sentir, una fuerza mágica sutil que se lleva de confiar en la intuición del artista . Mi esperanza está en que el espectador "lo hoiga" también. Dentro de un mundo de colores en pastel y pigmentos con sus suaves tonos, procuro aislar el pensamiento singular que defina una imagen en mis pinturas de pastel, simplemente y sin elementos adicionales o competentes. Esto sucede mejor cuando dibujo en específico tiempo y espacio. Las armonías en el tono y el dulzor natural de la cana de azúcar son recuerdos a los paisajes de mi infancia .
