Artist's statement: My use of mixed medium or controlling devices is my means of vividly expressing my inner thoughts. My works express my feelings of sympathy for human relationships in our technology-oriented world – a world that has used, without conscience, force to conquer our natural environment. Human relationships have been changed by this phenomenon, yet the underlying laws of the universe remain constant – the velocity of light has not changed since Creation.
