Artist's Statement

I like to delve into visual language from the perspective of non-conformity; that which is accepted doesn’t always line-up with our experience, nor do we arrive at the same conclusions. However, every bit of human presence is illuminating while also displaced in the history of the visual arts and this allows me to draw an alternative path where I live art and existence as an individual with near total freedom, where spirit, physical experience and conscience feedback and manifest as a whole, where knowledge bumps against the senses and finally leaves a group of artworks and ideas, a tour of lived experience.
