Artist statement

My own life and work is a journey toward simplicity, non-materiality and reflection. I look for meaning, leaving behind the mad, wound-up lifestyle of the great American suburb. Like some other contemporary western artists (Marina Abramovic, Alistair MacLennan, Wolfgang Laib), I look East to Zen concepts of acceptance, compassion, non-linear time and impermanence. I embrace meditation as a tool for living and making art. It is a pathway into my unconscious mind -- my authentic self -- where I sift and search for meaning and value. Images gleaned from this place make up my work.
