"My work begins with a concept or idea that I sense opens a wellspring of visual possibilities, and questioning of social constructs. Using techniques to develop structure, form and dimension, I journey through a process of connection and response to the world that I am creating. This world seems to be in a continual state of flux, of metamorphous, an invention then reinvention as I search for that illusive image that gives power and strength to the concept, and opens the doors to questioning social values."
