My works for the last 30 years have a profound impact on our contemporary culture today. Art remains as a strong contender of how we share our thoughts and ideas. Throughout history, art has survived the tidal wave of information, and remains an unpredictable source of imagination. It has the possibilities of changing ones thoughts, opening new ideas and borrowing through received ideas so common to our educational system. I have no grand illusions that art will create a revolution in the traditional sense. Just one new idea can change a person perception.

The use of materials in my work is calculated. I am often looking for avenues of the unexpected. An ironic twist to images or things you might expect.
Or their combination. Provoking a participant to new and perhaps unexplored territories.
