"My work expresses my emotions about the fracturing and dislocation of what we are doing. So I break up the image and show the cracks, the glitches, the damage that we live with day-to-day.”
"The result is a rich, layered, complex image of color and pattern - a woven story where some parts of the world are recognizable but others are pixelated, nonsensical, and unknowable."
"It leads me to exploring the ugliness that can coexist with great beauty, the sense that no beauty is fully complete without flaw."
"To live without over-thinking without the intricate webs of explanation, opinion, and argument!"
"When I see colors and patterns that speak to me, I feel light and airy, the rhythms make me want to move, to dance, to and create."
"My studio is in the Mission District in San Francisco California. The energy, multidimensional culture, and vistas of the city still energize me. I live surrounded by the ocean, in city enveloped by the natural world."

"I feel as an artist that I have a responsibility to take a personal stance on the current zeitgeist. To use my art to express my thoughts and feelings about the chaotic changes that are all around us."
