Like you, I am simply a human being trying to understand the insanity of the world I was born into. Like many of my fellow humans, I have had to deal with issues like politics in 2022, love, marriage, sex, children, joy, fear, pain, separation, covid, death, severe panic attacks, the epic struggles of life as a mid-level bureaucrat, etc. The objects and images that I create are tangible responses to the issues and ideas that I am trying to understand. For me, the creative act and the process of making is always a learning experience and quite often the object or image that I create changes me as much as I change it.
