Artist Statement

My art practice crosses three continents over two decades.  The works consider the images and ideas that mark my journey into the spiritual and cultural dimensions as a creative activity.  During the period when I have carried adventurous journeys across several different social and geographic divides, I began to search deeper for an understanding of who I am, and where I am.  My works started to explore the idea of self as the most fundamental element of human nature. I tried to seek my identity as I examined human nature.
