“Art is my conduit for making sense of my self in the universe. It consists of wrestling imagery out of paint, thread, line and thoughts. I perform, shape, sew, dig, paint, write and capture life through a lens. The point seems to be to probe what in the world I’m doing here at this random time on earth.”
