"Whether it is the heroic grandeur of Michelangelo's David, the love of a man for a woman as in Rodin's The Eternal Idol, or the radiant world depicted in the sparkling drawings of Frank Lloyd Wright, art has always affirmed my deepest beliefs about the beauty of life.
In an age where the purpose of much "art" is to shock, offend, or bewilder, art of beauty and meaning is a bright spot; it is a balm for our eyes and our souls. I believe art should uplift the human spirit. That is why I seek the ideal in my art, the ideal illuminates our potentialities. It is an affirmation of the best within us."
