"My artistic practice has been one of experimentation, breadth, and depth. I work with equal facility in painting, printmaking and sculpture, defying the often held expectation that an artist can master just one medium.
My mind and hands are instruments of ceaseless creation, they paint, they pull handmade prints, they sculpt."
