My art work is conceptual whether the works are made of traditional or modern mediums are irrelevant to me. I choose to work with different mediums for what they signify and culturally represent.

Methods and mediums have ranged and crossed over from casting Plaster of Paris to editing found video clips and digital photo editing. The common denominator between the mediums of all the works would be that they are disseminative. Used as carriers of culture originally intended to be multiplied and distributed.  My art comments on the nature of the mediums that they are made from. Either I seek out a visual esthetic or statement that the medium lends it’s self to.
