Statement

Statement:

I attempt to make art that has its own fingerprint.  The images I explore focus on the concerns and relationships to social issues I feel are relevant.  I seek out unique and personal ways of integrating a variety of ingredients for each composition, attempting to develop an attitude of curiosity and discussion when viewing a particular artwork.
