>In the Fall of 2018, I visited Normandy to pursue my research, to create two commemorative paintings for the 75th Anniversary of D-Day. During a visit at the Commonwealth War Grave Cemetery of Beny-sur-Mer, I met the Gardner. As we were conversing, this humble man, simple said; “I think I am more a Guardian of the Memory, than I am a Gardner”. Those words penetrated my soul deeply. It was exactly what brought me in Normandy, to be a witness of the past, a “Guardian of the Memory”.
>Translated to Latin, Custos Memoria, became my motto. Through the BIA documentary series and my paintings, my mission is to communicate and preserve our rich Military Legacy.
