What's It All About?
My work is my work – it's me – a reflection of my experiences: physical, emotional, spiritual, and transcendent.
My work explores the known and things discovered along the way: 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.
