I draw upon a candid sensibility and wit employed through a range of media. The handling of content and materials is derived from a personal philosophy to work with an utmost economy of means, attaining much from little. The work is self-possessed, grounded in the reinterpretation of the matter it is made of, existing as metaphorical onomatopoeias in which the physical and conceptual content is compounded. In alignment with the landscape of the natural world, the work is simultaneously abstract and representational.

“My aim is not to make a system… but to picture a world… the picturing of worlds requires not a static and systematic formulation, but an active exploration of images and views, a continual jumping-about, imaginative movement.” —Dr. Oliver Sacks
