The world is in constant motion. We grasp at the patterns we perceive in nature and struggle with belief systems to try and make sense of our world. Art is my way of trying to understand. The art I make doesn’t give any answers. It sometimes raises questions and present mysteries to the viewer. When I’m making a painting, print or drawing it is like writing a poem. It is my way of conveying a feeling, idea or observation. It is how I connect myself to the world and acknowledge the human condition, which can be both tragic and comic. Since I have discovered no universal truths, I continue to ask the eternal questions. I invite you to view my work and also to engage in a dialogue of socially and politically relevant questions pertinent to our common human experiences. We live in times that test the soul; art is a way of trying to understand.
