"Art is important because it makes aspects of the unconscious realm visible to the ego. Many people go lifetimes rejecting half of their consciousness. They do this because it makes no sense to their ego, therefore they write it off as superfluous or scary. As a result they unknowingly get stuck in feedback loops in life. This is because they have rejected a major part of reality, the intangible creative forces that eventually manifest in the physical. That is why all arts are important, both to produce and to experience. Art isn’t for the disciplined or only for people who have put in hours of practice, art is for everyone."

"Art transcends the barriers of language and culture, because it uses the universal language of symbology. It is a more sacred way of speaking to the human mind. Understanding the symbolic requires the person to be in touch with both their inner self and external surroundings. Much like a dream, a symbol can carry gnosis from the infinite unconscious into the conscious realm. My goal is to awaken something, within myself and my audience, which may not be explainable in words but is expressed viscerally and felt intensely. It may be something simple, or something so complex that I myself am still trying to understand its meaning.The universe creates art through you. It guides your hand in space and time, and you witness its beautiful unfolding."
