Piece description from the artist
My experience with Japanese sumi-e painting, photography and Zen practice, converge into my collage work. Through these multi-faceted and divergent influences, I discover myself, and the connections of seemingly unconnected forces. Creating imagery is a journey that uncovers the unity and equality between animals, humans and nature, and the pleasure of allowing these connections to be revealed is what drives me into the process of image-making and experimentation. Through this work of uncovering the underlying inter-dependent nature of all things, the creative process becomes a spiritual journey.
