Today I envision the world, the universe, and my existence within, as collaged experiences. Layers and fragments from childhood to adult, formal and self-education, adding personal and media influenced worldview with spiritual and practical human gestures all floating inside looking for position.
Starting from what I know of who I am, it's about searching for my truth within the ethnic domain. Feeling from ethnic and national differences is born the variety of artistic expressions.
My representation is in portrait, figure and gestures. While not wanting to shout a bold political or social statement, it seeps through. Also asking can I depict conscience today without spiritual, emotional or intercultural elements?
I approach subject matter in a manner to exalt life... In whatever form it occurs.
The passion is.... being able to tell the story with no beginning or ending.....just chapters.

Hey there stranger, I really love your collage work. It's been a couple of years since I've seen your work on my computer screen, and the initial work you shared was primarily portraiture. It was beautiful of course, as all your work is, but the collage is somehow 'electrified' and very, very exciting stuff. We've known one another for nigh on 45 y.../...
