For over 30 years I have been working as a conceptual, inter-media artist using beauty and newness as tools in a contemporary fine arts context. I use all media for its intrinsic nature and visual qualities and have produced works ranging from ceramics to robotics. I use the most direct route and select the particular medium through which to illustrate an issue of specific cultural or social interest. My work reflects aspects of diversity and social consciousness, with the specific intent of reminding everyone of their relative place in this community and ecology. In general, my fine art works usually lean toward large-scale, interactive pieces, which translate well into the public art arena.
