“To me, great artists are innovators, expanding and evolving human consciousness. The artists I consider great are the ones who have contributed to the way the world is seen through their personal vision. The images I create reflect my interest in imagination, culture, and communication. I am intrigued by things that can be thought or experienced, but not necessarily seen.
“Images of fantasy, dream imagery, spiritual and folkloric themes, and visualizing music are recurring themes in my work. My interest in science, philosophy, and nature is strong. Animals, the environment, and the interrelationship of all things are important sources of ideas for me.”
