Art Statement

Indeed, if it were not for you, what would I be? 

Walt  Whitman                                                             
Notes from Poets to Come

This series of works on paper, entitled Tattoo Trails No.1, explores my interest in the human experience.  What drives and motivates us? How do we endure the most challenging of situations? Do we control our destiny or do events determine the direction that our lives take? By exploring these questions I would like to establish a dialogue with the viewer about our collective life experience.

This body of work was inspired by a photograph  that was taken at a performance by David Hammons in 1983.
