Artist Statement

Title: Sands of Time

The things that inspire me are often those that bring upon self-reflection and inner peace. On a walk through these sands, during a magical sunset, I stopped to take a few breaths and think of all the people that had walked here before me, and all of those who would walk them after me.

“Lives of great men all remind us

We can make our lives sublime,

And, departing, leave behind us

We can make our lives sublime,

Footprints on the sands of time.”

– Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
