My artwork represents an examination of the dark aspects of my personality. For me, art making has never been a choice, but rather a catharsis, or a psychological need to purge the contents of my mind. Much like the Surrealist, I use dream imagery and intuition to bring forth the irrational and sometimes dangerous aspects of my personality; but, unlike the Surrealist, my goal or desire is to examine, understand and positively integrate the rational and irrational aspects of my personality.
