My work stems from a singular, strong and clear desire to create aesthetically pleasing physical realities - to transform light and space and materials into a visual dialogue with people so they become more aware of their surroundings. Art is an act of an individual to say something new, so the mind's eye focuses on the physical as well as the psychological aspects of life as it was, is and will be. I express myself through illuminations, figurative sculpture and paintings. My "outsider art" uses a variety of media, including glass, ceramic, light, metal, prints, oil and acrylic.
