"My artistic objectives are to utilize techniques such as collage, decollage and assemblage, combining mixed media and re-purposed / found objects as a physical expression of my conscious and subconscious thoughts. I aim to portray truth and authenticity juxtaposing objective reality with the subjective psyche. I hope to stimulate humanity’s innate ability to create meaningful relationships with people and art through direct interaction. Through abstraction, my goal is to challenge my audience to de-isolate themselves, break down personal barriers and initiate an emotional response. he inspiration for my art comes from my connection to the urban landscape and the human experience."

“I am particularly interested in:

• Visual language and the mental action or process of acquiring knowledge and
understanding through thought, experience and the senses.
• The progressive deterioration of thinking ability, memory and sight and how it
affects self-identity and persona.
• The impact of technology and media on human interaction and communication in
today’s society.”
