My Artwork has been described by others as "an embarrassment of riches in a colorful world of subconscious thinking." It is like a journey into the deepest corner of my mind which pulls out current ideas and accumulations of my past experiences, welding them together and presenting them to the world allowing the viewer to create their own conclusions and individual meanings that are all their own."
