Art is my connection to the world.
Some of my images and writings address loneliness and the thunderstorms of life.
To me, it is through destruction and sorrow that a new light can be seen, somewhere beyond the wall. Sometimes these bridges to new horizons are hard to build and our days project long, dark shadows.
To come to terms with the fractures inside ourselves, and to collect and examine all the signs that life has carved into our bodies, minds and souls, is a challenging journey.
To me, the life we have lived is the subject matter. It can not be disregarded.
As an artist, I use this matter as the paste of my paintings and writings, to give life to my images and to my stories.
