“I am dedicated to the idea of rethinking, reimagining and repurposing the sustainable, resilient imagery and methodology from the ancient past to speak to the present. The era of 20th Century fast, momentary, disposable ‘now’ art & culture does not respond to the needs of a shrinking planet. I am focused on creating enduring, sustainable, ‘long art’ for the new millennium.”
