Artist’s Statement:
These things have their own meaning, their own unique velocity in the realm of questions, the changing form, circling from within. It is here where my movements are measured, where I relearn the nature of hope. In the course of such things, it is memory that teaches me what reality cannot, instinctively moving me towards what I most need to understand.“ Excerpt from Nueva Luz, Volume 5#2

My images do not speak of where I have been but of how I've been, what I have felt and what was learned in the process. It is this process, not the product, that matters most.
