Abstract art, for me, is an indispensable medium for communicating a moral idea.

The moral idea that occurs in all my creations is freedom.  Freedom to choose goes hand in hand with the creation of abstract art.  Without freedom there can be no choice, the commitment to select or the commitment to choose to refrain are both linked.

The Sky Stone Jacket

Featured image: The Sky Stone Jacket

She could still smell and feel her grandmother's scent as she put on the turquoise jacket her grandmother always used to wear.  Every time she put on the Sky Stone Jacket she recalled the stories her grandmother told her about the color turquoise. Her grandmother said the color turquoise, the sky stone, connected heaven and earth and that the color turquoise helped us connect with the spirit world.

She loved wearing her grandmother’s jacket and the memories of her grandmother.
