My intent is to find connection in the mundane and familiar spectrum of ordinary experience, choosing subjects typically unnoticed and without theme or association. I see the representational image as a studio-fabricated passkey to memory and imagination, the first line of a perpetual conversation without need of translation -- more like a direct way of knowing.

I’ve worked essentially outside the art world as presently constituted, self-taught and self-supported by various semi-occupations, abiding as the real world has been changing around us. I’ve noted recently an increased response to even early work, perhaps a sign of new-found self-confidence and willingness to participate in visual dialogue by a broadening audience.
