Artist statement:
I am looking for sanity through my work. It allows me to enter the void where duality is transcended, questions cohabitate with answers and time opens to a sense of expansiveness.

I want to make rather than buy, to fashion for myself rather than resort to something already there, to make my own meaning in this life rather than consume it. That is my rebellion.

We are makers of our own mythologies these days.

I watch mine come to life through the creation of prints and other objects. Themes pop up, images reoccur, a dream continues its life on the surface of the page. Using a range of techniques from traditional etching to ‘ghetto lithography’ I seek to re-create and recreate, to find joy and a sense of the infinite, and to share what I’ve found:

     remember wonder!!
