Artist's Statement
The focus of my creative spirit is fundamentally the relationship with our inner self and externally with the environment around us. How we consider and interact with others becomes comparable to the connection that bonds or disassociates us to life. It is this relationship that dictates how we perceive and correspond with all living components that share our present existence on this earth.
