"From my creative vantage point, there are zero limits. The nature and spirit of my artwork evokes a meditative ethos. I gravitate toward communicating this ethos by forming texture through the use of unconventional mediums. I do not allow my artistry to be confined to any particular order of operations. Instead, I let the art itself dictate the process, which allows me to discover methods and techniques that are essential to the delivery of the craft of my vision."
