Statement

" The divine mystery that you seek is the very source of your own life -
find it within! "

Joseph Campbell

 

International Contemporary Visual Artist: with exhibitions and competitions in Chicago • New York • Wakayama City, Osaka, & Tokyo, Japan • Havana, Cuba • Paris, & Monflanquin, France

When we find the path that most deeply affects our consciousness - it's not a matter of chosing - you have been chosen and you've got to follow it no matter how difficult the road. I am committed to the pursuit of compelling images that sustain a sense of mystery - while simultaneously revealing the ineffible.

Major Influences:

Patrick Betaudier (El Maestro!)

Mythology
"And the deities that we once thought were out there, we know now, were projected out of ourselves. They are the products of our human imagination seeking to interpret, one way or another, the mysteries of the universe."    

Joseph Campbell
