“I am a painter, printmaker, photographer and writer.

I migrate between these disciplines, trying to make sense of the worlds I live in, pass through, visit. I find more and more that the work I make has most resonance when it has been transformed, in the process of translation from one media to another, into an unexpected metamorphosis that has nothing to do with me as author but rather belongs to the workshop that is our expanding universe."
