Fine Art As a visual artist and poet, I mine stories that have been
buried or left to die. I raise questions that need attention. I shine light on
shadows and attempt to bring voice to the voiceless.
I am constantly exploring new means of expressing the “smells i see”. By
re-purposing e-waste and other objects in my assemblage artworks, that may have
found their way into landfills and toxic dumps, both nationally and
internationally and among our world’s poorest citizens, these elements now may
find their way into museums to be viewed by some of our world’s wealthiest
The Purpose of My Work
1. To re-purpose environmental waste that is globally endangering humanity,
youth of many impoverished African, Asian and European countries.
2. I believe in documenting my time on this earth through art and the art of
the story. I rely on
metaphor as a means of presenting visual art as literature. As a poet I firmly
believe in the story
behind my art and the power derived from leaving a visual history.
3. I hope to contribute additional voice and attention to stories that may get
lost in the myriad of
stories presented as popular culture; stories that receive much less media
attention than less
controversial news. My intent is to add to the dialogue that may bring about
creative solutions to
problems of conscience that we encounter as human beings.
