In our travels we may get lost or
turned around, but ultimately, we find our way. It is my journey through chaos
that makes me appreciate my travels. It is the many faces we see and ways of
life we experience that expose us to worlds outside of our own. That
combination of imagi-nation and cultural diversity allows the mind to travel
while viewing my art. The art tells a story of the aspects of life that are
shared between different cultures.
Inspiration for my art comes from
travels as well as inquiry into the places I might like to explore. Media
ranging from ceramics to photography helps build the narrative. Viewing my work
might allow the observer to reminisce on where they’ve been. Carving into my ceramic
work directly references architecture of different countries. Portrait
photography and painting depict people and places that one might encounter
Art is a vehicle that can take people
places. This use of art for storytelling is a part of our shared human
experience. It is often easier to tell a story about where you have been. To
help someone place themselves into that environment is a greater undertaking.
