There are so many birds in my paintings, circling, singing and soaring! They are my messengers of hope, bearers of good tidings, the eternal mediators between heaven and earth.  
 
Emily Dickinson's poem, Hope is the Thing with Feathers, is the most eloquent definition of hope that I've ever come upon. It inspires me to express and share the power of hope through my work.

Hope, as Dickinson's poem so aptly expresses, perseveres despite all obstacles.  This "thing with feathers", present in the soul of every hero,  makes all things possible!
