"One of the earliest memories I have as a child is sitting upon my mother's lap as she showed me how to make a swan in finger paints by using my little fingers and fists.  Even now as I paint, I can still feel the wonder of creation well up within me just as I did while she held me in her arms on that day when art became an integral part of my life.  Swans still occasionally show up in my work."
