Artist Statement

What I value most in life is creativity, in myelf and others. Celebration, affirmation, joy, and belief past oneself, are for me, all contingent on creativity. It is propelling, expansive, and illuminating beyond a trapping ego. If just for a moment of working, I am outside the confines of self, and then I am free because of creativity.
