Stained glass sculpture is a spatial art in which beauty is created through a bringing together of nature and spirit in a light-filled space. The elements that make up this spatial art are the radiant, richly expressive glass surfaces and the precisely drawn black lines that delineate the overall structure and draw out its emotion. I like to draw straight, bold lines because I believe that a person shines most when being straightforward. After all, touching the inner self with an open heart is true artistic expression. Drawing and the artistic process itself is my way of embracing the act of expression. I want to fulfill my social responsibility as an artist, train my mind to face the truth, deepen my personal philosophy, and create dignified, expressive art. With a respect for all things, I try to imbue my work with a passion for truth and spiritual purification, past beyond which my artistic expression can be traced no further.
