One of the most important goals I have set for myself as an artist is to express the importance that we as human beings recognize our similarities, embrace them, and work, together to grow and enrich our experience in life. We are all individuals celebrating life in our own unique ways. Yet we have so much in common. This commonality among all people is represented in my work by details. Put very simply, I prefer to focus on the traits we share, not that which separates us. This series features people both with and without hats. Some of us have been blessed with more opportunities and material things than others, yet despite our individual needs, we can all celebrate the miracle of life. Most importantly, if we pause for a moment and take time to be aware of all that we have to be grateful for, we are actually celebrating our abundance and inviting prosperity.
This series, perhaps more than any other, epitomizes my lifes work which, in turn, is a direct reflection of my personal philosophy and who I am as a person. I truly believe it’s about what we have, not what we don’t have. I am frequently reminded of the abundance in my life, and for this I am grateful.
