My work mirrors my fascination with interconnectedness.  There is a thread that connects music, theater, painting, history, the high and the low brow.  I try to see how one idea or thing is a new metaphor for something from a seemingly unrelated field.  Symbol, analogy and metaphor are the elements in my work.  Storytelling comes through, even when I try to avoid it.

I find myself rewriting and combining familiar narratives. Visual history, folktales, human achievements (positive and negative), and the late-late show are just the tip of the iceberg.   All are fair game.  The symbolic baggage of images re-combine to re-present recognized stories.  It is as if I am looking at things from the other side of the page, holding it up to the light and reading it from that perspective.  I try to connect these various interpretations in order to deconstruct or to rebuild them from scratch.
