“everything has a secret soul which is silent”

               -Kandinsky

 

“I am a visual artist.  I’m interested in the underlying spiritual meaning and search for ways to infuse the works with symbols of identity and mythology.  The sculptures, video and prints are about connections between the physical and spiritual world and are rooted in cultural myths or personal stories.  Each of the series of “Spirit” sculptures, which combine found objects, beads, clay, glass and other materials, are assemblages to invoke the spirit and are personal prayers, stories or myths. I’ve always been interested in the idiosyncratic ways in which materials convey meaning whether it’s through painting, video, mixed media, printmaking or collage.  I feel I’m allowed to use multi faceted ways of expressing an idea.”
