I postulate that the function of art is to make us aware of what we know and don't know that we know, of what is happening at the margins of perception, half seen half heard, half felt. Now you see it now you don't.- William S. Burroughs

I am a painter, printmaker, sculptor and photographer. I use these different mediums to express myself with a variety of voices. My work emerges from the perspective of my human situation. The issues presented in my work are deeply felt and often social and political concerns. I work to unveil a truth and create a new perception. I hope you find my work rich with meaning and visually engaging.
