In my work I focus on line, always recognizing its presence within drawing, Chinese calligraphy and painting, and American Abstract Expressionism. I appreciate the linear qualities inherent in nature. Through the use of line, I try to express feelings of delicacy, buoyancy, suavity, motion, power and strength.

Within the creative process from my urban recluse experiences, I express the sense of force, inner existence and endless life through drawing and sculpture/installation. My 3D work is composed of recycled materials including; copper wire, electrical wire and components, and some found objects.

My work is about harmony and dissonance, peace and chaos, the beautiful and the grotesque, the subtle and the powerful. It is also about the driving force for inner fulfillment, balance, meditative process, human internal structures, the transitional human condition, and experiencing the inner power. I feel the realization, understanding, and experience of “Wholeness” or “the Self” which makes this sometimes melancholy and solitary existence complete.

  1. Asking questions are in fact pleasant thing if
    you are not understanding something entirely, except this piece of writing offers nice understanding even.
