Artist statement excerptI wish to create a garden for you. It is overgrown, alive and bustling with alternative plants and insects. Fauna and flora from a secret world, an untouchable realm. I wish to express the principles of the divine through a plethora of organic abstraction. I strive to construct creations that lie outside our universe and yet parallel it. Nature begins again in isolation. I have eschewed measurements, sketches, references, strict geometry. I denounce the brutal vulgarity of the straight line and the square. I begin from nothing and build into a frenzy. I champion the curve, indulging in sensual textures. I am driven to express the uniqueness that pervades being.
