Artistic Statement

A product of the city, the characters depicted in my work reflect a diverse landscape of people. A recent exhibition, "Starships and Angels", at its source is a narrative about individuals following their inner passions. Characters are visited by Dream Guardians who are sent to help each of us pursue our inner dream. When you are pursuing your own personal dream you are charged by a sense of purpose. And when you have purpose you have power.
