Art can be a powerful way to search for purpose and meaning. Anything we wonder about, question, or experience can later breach the surface of the subconscious to become an iconic visual symbol. In my own work, figures, animals, and buildings interact in a metaphoric narrative that is autobiographical and, hopefully, universal. I imagine that they are me. I am every man, woman, and animal that I draw. I am everybody and nobody in particular. My pieces explore and celebrate the certainties and ambiguities of personality, relationships, and being.
