My background in journalism informs my identity as an artist. I pursue my need to understand, to look directly where others turn away. The necessity to witness and to report is a key to my work and my investigations. I follow and explore an event or an experience that fires up my curiosity and my imagination and inspires me to create bridges between different realities. I meet the challenge via any medium at hand, be it photography, film, video, painting, sculpture, performance or a combination of the above. My art practice is a journey from the outside taken in, filtered, and redirected back out via the work. It is a process of self-discovery and a vehicle of communication. The resulting works are as revealing to me as they may be to the viewer. I seek to multiply that vibe and follow the ripples going out to stir new waters changing perspectives, points of view, visions.
