I use a variety of media to create and construct urban rituals that are related to the ceremonial aspects of art. Smoking, burning, line carving, metals and pigments in varied hues create symbolic images, which leave us at the edge of a doorway of possibilities. Fire is the element at the core of my work, and I consider myself a constructivist. My intent is to awaken the intuitive nature of an audience to access the mystery of all that exists beneath the surface of life. My work springs from the region of instinct and interior, and brings to the viewer an opportunity to experience a bridge between the superficial and the mystical.
