Artist statement-

"My style ranges from sketchy to finely detailed compositions. Whether in book-form or in gallery installations (I like to call these room-books), I consider my work to be comics. One of the great things about the comics medium is its capacity to use multiplicity of voices and simultaneity. Art is a means of engaging in conversations and contemplations. With this in mind, I like to raise questions and stimulate thought and feelings. I'm not here to provide answers. As with all dialogue, the take-away is collaborative."
