Artist's Statement

I SEE MY WORK AS A BRIDGE BETWEEN TWO WORLDS. THE SUBJECT MATTER IS A REFERENCE TO A PERSONAL ICONOGRAPHY OF VISIONARY DREAM IMAGES, A REDISCOVERY OF ANCIENT HIDDEN TREASURES WHICH INCLUDE; THE GRAIL JOURNEY, CELTIC SHAMANISM, TIBETAN BUDDHISM, QUANTUM PHYSICS, THE CREATION STORY, THE NEAR DEATH EXPERIENCE, THE SUPERNATURAL WOMAN AND THE SACRED UNION OF MALE AND FEMALE ENERGIES. AS IN A DREAM, THINGS INITIALLY APPEAR FAMILIAR YET ENIGMATIC, AND SOME HOW NOT QUITE RIGHT. THIS IS THE AGE OLD CALL TO THE TRANSCENDENT ADVENTURE.
