I see the world as one enormous source of ideas and inspiration. I am interested in how the world works, how humans interact, how our wilderness is shrinking with the growth of cities, and the resulting fallout of these conditions. I feel at ease with most media, and continue to explore new ways to develop artistic form. I paint, draw, sculpt, and make prints and ceramics. It is important for me to honour the materials I work with, reveal my process, and create artwork that stimulates the imagination and moves the soul.
