Communication through metaphor is my goal; it is sharing on the deepest level with others. For me, the creative process is akin to giving birth, with all the effort, hope, struggle and joy. You shape and love what results; you give it to the world.
I consider materials as powerfully evocative as color and imagery because of their associative powers. I select and combine them according to the message I wish to convey. Likewise, the medium I choose to work with, whether photography, painting, graphics, three-dimensional construction, lighting, etc., has both an aesthetic and evocative purpose. Exploring new media and materials is one of the joys of my creative work.
