I attempt to express in purely visual terms images which are not simply
visual experiences, but which are also experiences of my life. Indeed, art is the expression of one's total experience and it seems that I'm obsessed with the struggle both for and against time.
I'm not trying to communicate any
pre-conceived thought or feeling,
I do, however, feel that an artist must express in whatever medium he/she is most skilled. I am most comfortable in creating hand painted paper collages, each piece a new experience and new challenge. I want my work to reveal in itself certain basic principles of honesty and integrity - which, to me, the foundation of all fine art.
