I create art to share my experiences with others. Growing up in a small town that relied on heavy industry, the ground often shook underfoot as the miners dug further. The rawness of the ore being brought up from the mines shaped my world view. I see everything as trying to return to an original state, to be born again.

We are all part of one universe, and our shared connection is most obvious during encounters. An encounter can be fleeting, but each one begins a new path in my life.
