a life of travel
Over 15 years I have lived in approximately 30 countries. I use these experiences as seeds of inspiration in my art pieces.
Religion Philosophy and Art
I weave deeper social and philosophical meanings into my work. As I traveled I studied the religion and culture of the places I went.
