STATEMENT

I send unspoken messages through my art. I am intrigued by the space beyond mundane reality -the dimension where distance or time no longer dictates. I drag inspiration from near death experiences and altered states of consciousness. Art is like a message in a bottle; you don’t know who the message will reach.
