Artist Statement

Speaking as an artist, I strive to create images based on my experiences, which in turn, function as symbolic, pictorial interpretations of the world that I live in. Since I am basically a printmaker; I tend to be very process oriented and enjoy the technical challenges of producing hand pulled original prints. However, I have always been receptive to other forms of expression and techniques; consequently I have a habit of and enjoy changing or playing around with different subject matter, composition, scale, techniques and processes when I feel it is appropriate. But my intent remains the same; interpreting and symbolizing, through my images, the relationships and experiences that I have which all share as living, thinking, feeling human beings.
