I consider my work to be a form of communication that emerges from the conduit between the senses. Whether subtle and simplified, or profound and enlightening, the messages are revealed through the process of letting go; trusting the primal instinct, as to the brush, to the color and to what mediums fall prey in each step of the process. The result is an expression in a tangible, simplified form than the linear fashion of words attempt to weave through the emotional, spiritual, physical and mental realms of existence.
Capturing the spirit is the core of my work, whether it be captured by a photograph, sculpted in clay, layered with paint or strung with beads.
