Personal Profile

ABOUT ME

To be creative is to truthfully respond to one’s world, both real and imagined. I believe that I can say more and indefinitely less with images. For me, marks on paper offer a multitude of possibilities for meaning. Meaning is never linear, it shoots forth in many directions and is the deeply personal experience of the viewer.
