What's It All About?

My work is my work – it is my life – a reflection of my experiences: physical, emotional, spiritual, and transcendent.

 

My work is an exploration of the known and things not yet known:  searching for meaning and understanding from the micro to the macro and from places and things beyond my earthly vision.

My work draws inspiration from everything I encounter and is organically revealed through an iterative process, a dance with paint, canvas, camera, technology and the eye that seeks to understand me, the world and my place in it.

A Narrative of Energy.
