“Art collecting to me has never been about putting ‘trophies’ on the wall. My art collecting has been and is simply a journey to help unlock the mysteries of life. Art serves as a catalyst to help me see and perceive the beauty and wonder of the everyday world around us. To me, art is life; difficult, demanding, mysterious, and awe-inspiring. ”
