As a conceptually-based mixed media artist, art making is a form of visual communication. I attempt to visually articulate concepts that stimulate personal introspection, that raise questions and if successful encourage viewer contemplation.  I cross-pollinate diverse materials and processes as felt integral to the conveyance of a greater idea. The work is multi-faceted and exists within the realm of intention. Over the past two decades I have employed photographic imagery in much of the work, but as I am not a photographer per se, I engage this process from an unconventional perspective, as simply a means to an end.
