"Art is the human need for self-expression."

What themes does your work involve?
My work tends to represent two primary reoccurring themes sexuality, and religion one bines us to our physical reality while one promises a new reality.
Describe your creative process.
I record images not necessarily full sense but pieces of a puzzle that I later combine with other pieces to complete a finished work. I use post-production to overlay and add textures to make the final image more compelling.
What influences your work? What inspires you? Why do you make art?
What influences me is life. What inspires my inner voices and the creative process. I make art because I have come to view it as my life's purpose.
What is good art? What makes a piece of art great?
Any human endeavor that seeks question and inspires our emotional encounter. Emotions are how we respond physically to life situations and are grounded in our sexuality.
What is the role of the artist today?
The role of the artist today is, as it has always been, to inspire and question who we are.
