Additional Information

“I am primarily a working visual artist in a wide array of materials and media; including, assemblage, ceramics, fused glass, screen printing, video, welded steel and 3D-printed sculpture. I try to exemplify the true meaning of what an artist is; a person who acquires technical skills which he puts to the service of a creative response to life itself.  Through the creation of my art I access my own life experiences as motifs for my artistic expressions. All of my many one-person exhibitions reflect, in craft and subject matter, a concern for contemporary life and the human condition.”
